No Word from Gurb – Eduardo Mendoza
A shape-shifting extraterrestrial named Gurb has assumed the form of Madonna and disappeared in Barcelona’s backstreets. His commanding officer and best friend has sent off in pursuit, scrupulously recording his observations of a human life in the city while munching through vast quantities of churros. No stone is left unturned, no danger too much, in the search for his old pal Gurb.
Will Barcelona survive this alien invasion Will the captain ever find his subordinate? Are there enough churros in Barcelona to satsify his intergalactic appetite.
A delirious and hilarious satire of our society’s mores.
