Novel set in Buenos Aires, quite surprising to read. The plot can only be understood after reaching the end, and yet not entirely, as there are some loose ends left to the reader's imagination. A bride is killed on the night of the wedding, with all evidence pointing that the murderer was her husband - who is a dreamer, an insignificant man, unable to do harm to anyone. The various book chapters are the statements of several people who knew him; but beyond the facts, they present every possible explanation of what happened, creating parallel stories that mix real events with personal interpretation and pure imagination. The situation becomes even more confusing because the groom is a walking dreamer. The book has a lot of references to writers, artists, philosophers, which sometimes became annoying, and don't add value to the intrigue.
