A journalist named Terradillos interviews people who knew a late Argentinian author Alejandro Bevilacqua. There are four different interviews and four different stories of his life. The reader has to determine which person is telling the truth. What we know for sure is that Bevilacqua was found dead shortly after his highly successful book, "In Praise of Lying" is published. The first interview is of Alberto Manguel and is the most complete and centers solely on Bevilacqua. But is also paints the least interesting picture of Bevilacqua. The other interviewees also tell stories of their life up to the point that it intersects with Bevilacqua and to me, their stories are what make the book an interesting read. A clever concept allowing the reader to piece together a more complete story of this writers life and death from friends and foe.
