NPR Summary

Rodrigo likes his vacant lot, its resident chicken and being left alone. But when passivity finds him accidentally married to Cecilia, he trades Mexico City for the sun-bleached desolation of his hometown and domestic life with Cecilia for the debauched company of a poet, a philosopher and Micaela, whose allure includes the promise of time travel. Translated by Christina MacSweeney.
