No Word from Gurb
by: Eduardo Mendoza
A shape-shifting extraterrestrial named Gurb has disappeared in Barcelona, having assumed the form of Madonna, whose image he glimpses on a street poster. His partner, desperate to get him back, goes about trying to find him in a more discreet guise, scrupulously writing his observations in a diary ...No stone is left unturned, no danger too much, in the search for his old pal Gurb in the topsy-turvy world of planet Earth. No Word From Gurb is a riotous satire highlighting the contradictions of Western society in a lively, intelligent and sweetly ironic way.
