This entire novel consists of a discussion between two friends--one who just returned from Europe, the other a young accountant--about a grand birthday party neither one was able to attend. This doesn't stop them from swapping stories and hypotheses, which balloon into a riveting depiction of the complexities of life, especially at the dawn of Argentina's Dirty War.
