UNICAJA FERNANDO QUIÑONES NOVEL PRIZE

A man gets out of a plane on the Galapagos Islands. He's a musician and has chosen to come to this mysterious, remote part of the world to spend his sixtieth birthday because in addition to being an avid reader of Darwin he wants to get as far away from his old life as he can: he has fallen in love with a woman, Rut, who thinks he's far too old for her. So, the firm believer in the primacy of irony as the highest form of humour embarks upon a spellbinding trip around the islands, looking back over his life and the passage of time, to tell an intimate story about different forms of male love, acting as a kind of guide to the history of humanity and, of course, lamenting the absence of Rut at every turn.
