Waiting For Columbus

Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group Release date: 2009-08-25

Description

On a beautiful April morning, a man is brought to an insane asylum in contemporary Spain, claiming to be the legendary navigator Christopher Columbus. Found in the treacherous Straight of Gibraltar, he is clearly delusional and has suffered a trauma so severe that he has turned away from reality. As he spins the tall tales of adventure and romance of someone who existed in the late fifteenth century, the lonely Nurse Consuela can't help but be enchanted by his spirit. Who is Columbus? Where did he come from? This dazzling story about one man's painstaking search for truth and loyalty will haunt the reader long after the final page.
