(From the publisher):
A man asleep, Rubio flees Paris for the Egyptian desert. He escapes his back-biting colleagues, the proximity of his ex-wife, and the depressions that he diagnoses daily in the medical surgery. And Paris hates Rubio too. The city is like a TV show that wants only to humiliate him, to grab the old fellow's neck and force him to shop. The city is after him, and Rubio is running for his life, running down a slope while memory rides behind, ever so gently applying the brakes.
