About this title


Son de Mar is a love story about shipwrecks and returns. The main character, Ulises Adsuara, who disappeared ten years ago, is found floating on the beach dressed as a groom. A few hours later, his widow, Martina, appears dressed as a bride almost in the same place. From that moment, the author rewinds the story to the time the couple met, when Ulises was a literature teacher, and Martina, a daydreaming waitress at her fathers bar. The tedium takes a toll on their marriage. He wants to be a real sailor, tired of all the Greek classics. She expected something else of married life. One day Ulises disappears, and no sign of his body is found. Martina marries with an important local businessman. She apparently is happy with her new life until the day her first husband appears in the middle of a big party at her new house. The renew their relationship until events lead to the finding of both corpses that opens the novel. Description in Spanish: Son de Mar es una novela de amor, de naufragios y regresos. Todos los muertos vuelven si los llama el amante con la fuerza necesaria. El protagonista de esta novela es un naufrago que regresa despues de diez anos, pero este hecho sucede tambien cada dia en el asfalto de la ciudad. Segun el manual de la resurreccion, el primer requisito que se exige para resucitar es estar vivo, aunque la vida te sumerja cada dia en la profundidad de los mares. En este caso siempre habra algun amante que te llame desde cualquier orilla y tu tendras la necesidad de volver a ella. Manuel Vicent fue galardonado con el Premio Alfaguara de Novela 1999 por Son de Mar.
