“Literary Prozac.”—Cosmopolitan

“Eduardo Mendoza is one of contemporary Spain’s most important writers.”—The New York Times Book Review

“An accomplished literary novelist who knows how to entertain.”—Kirkus Reviews

A shape-shifting extraterrestrial named Gurb has assumed the form of Madonna and disappeared in Barcelona’s back streets. His hapless commander, desperately trying to find him, records the daily pleasures, dangers, and absurdities of our fragile world, while munching his way through enormous quantities of churros. No stone is left unturned 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 satisfy his intergalactic appetite?

Eduardo Mendoza was born in 1943 in Barcelona. He spent some years in New York working as an interpreter for the United Nations before returning to his native city. His other novels include The Truth About the Savolta Case, The City of Marvels, and The Year of the Flood.
