Mac, over sixty and recently unemployed, lives on his wife's earnings from her furniture restoration business. An avid reader, he decides at the age of sixty to keep a diary. Mac's wife, Carmen thinks he is simply wasting his time and risking sliding further into depression.

A funny, erudite novel from Villa-Matas with the process of writing and creation playfully at its heart.
