The hero of the novel is Herman Musset, a quiet man living in Amsterdam who teaches Classics and spends most of his life reading. It seems he has lived an unremarkable life until one morning Herman wakes up to find himelf in Lisbon twenty years earlier in a room where he once made love to a married woman.

This bizarre but touching novel will keep you guessing right up to the end. It is gloriously poetic and insighteful and full of literary references. Nooteboom has that rare ability to show wit whilst at the same time tugging on your heart-strings

Winner of the European Literary Prize for Best Novel, and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
