really liked it

A good, quick, light, funny, laugh-out loud read about two aliens. One, Gurb, has vanished down a back alley in Barcelona in the form of Madonna. The other, his superior, must find him. Throw in lots of satire, shape-shifting and witty observations and you have a perfect short novel.

Two quick things: I live in Spain but don´t trust my Spanish to read this in the original language - however, yesterday I was at a friend´s house and noticed this on the bookshelf (in castellano). Noticed that Gurb assumes the form of Marta Sanchez, which I thought was amusing. Secondly - can anyone recommend me any more Mendoza?
