The Lonely Hearts Club
A night porter in a sleazy Barcelona hotel, the only thing the 40-year-old Antonio Castro has going for him is his resemblance to Frank Sinatra. Thinking he has nothing to lose, Antonio joins a lonely hearts club and into his life come a Pérez Galdós widow, a dwarf poet, a gay barman.
The Lonely Hearts Club is a novel of Barcelona. Its people and its places, the Ramblas, the Plaza Real, the Barrio Chino, are brought to life in a book that is outrageously funny but never loses sympathy with its characters.
