Summary :

Herman Mussert went to bed last night in Amsterdam and wakes in Lisbon in a hotel room where he slept with another manís wife more than twenty years ago.

In lyrical and precise prose braided with myth and symbol, one of Holland's most popular authors tells the story of a funny-looking man who loved beauty; of a proud, spiritual soul who, all his life, was intrigued by transfiguration and who, despite himself, became a player in a drama of jealousy and revenge.
