This book consist of three longer poems. Prosa del otoño en Gerona is a series of prose fragment about a Chilean writer living in Gerona. "Los neochilenos" is the story of a rock band by that name traveling by bus from Chile to Peru and then Ecuador. "Un paseo por la literatura" is a series of dreams about literary figures, including Carson McCullers, Enrique Lihn, Archibold McCleish, George Perec... This third section is the most successful of the three. In one dream, the speaker is an old Latin American detective hired by Mark Twain to save the life of someone with no face.
