Summary:
Hailed as one of the top ten Spanish-language novels of the decade, The No World Concerto is a many-layered puzzle concerning an old screenwriter who has holed up in a shabby hotel in a never-named but familiar city in order to write a script about his lover--a young piano prodigy who wants in turn to give up music and become a novelist, and who believes she may be in contact with creatures from another world.
