A shape-shifting extraterrestrial named Gurb has disappeared in Barcelona, having assumed the form of Madonna, whose image he glimpses on a street poster.
His partner, desperate to get him back, goes about trying to find him in a more discreet guise, scrupulously writing his observations in a diary...
No stone is left unturned, no danger too much, in the search for his old pal Gurb in the topsy-turvy world of planet Earth.
No Word from Gurb is a riotous satire highlighting the contradictions of Western society in a lively, intelligent and sweetly ironic way.
"Eduardo Mendoza is one of contemporary Spain's most important writers."
