Synopsis

(Bécquer Alert) An enjoyable, witty novel suitable for all readers. Eduardo, a young man head over heels in love, adores Dafne so much he decides to prove it to her with a romantic act: he steals the remains of Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer from the crypt of the church of La Anunciación in Seville in order to place them in Trasmoz cemetery, where the poet hinted he wanted to be buried. However, when Eduardo and his friend Óscar discover they’ve lost the poet’s skull, an adventure begins that will force them to travel hundreds of miles to get it back, while the TV echoes news of the theft and brings Bécquer’s name back to the pages of the newspapers.
