By the celebrated Oulipo writer, this brilliant and witty novel set in Lisbon explores love, relationships, and the strange balance between literature and life.
nbsp;
Journalist, writer, and translator Vincent Balmer moves to Lisbon to escape from a failing affair. During his first assignment there, he teams up with Antonio--a photographer who has just returned to the city after a ten-year absence--to report for a French newspaper on an infamous serial killer's trial.
nbsp;
While walking around the city together to take notes and photos for the article, they visit the places of Antonio's childhood, swap stories from their pasts, and confide in each other. But the more they learn about each other, the more their lives become inextricably intertwined.
nbsp;
With a structure that parallels Homer's Odyssey , Eléctrico W recounts their nine days together and the adventures that proliferate to form a constellation of successive ephemeral connections and relationships.
