    Spanish writer José Ovejero, receiver of the 2013 Alfaguara Prize, is going to Santo Domingo to present his winning novel La invención del amor, as part of his promotional tour. The presentation, which is open to the public, will be Tuesday November 26th at 6:30pm at the Cuesta bookstore. Ovejero will confer with the highly experienced readers, bank executives by profession, María Angélica Haza and Yolanda Valdes.

    La invención del amor tells the story of Samuel, a 40 year old bachelor who works for a company on the brink of shutting down from the crisis and enjoys watching the daily hustle and bustle of Madrid from a balcony. One day someone calls him on the phone and tells him Clara has died; that unknown woman will become the center around which his life revolves.

    He finds out that the person they’ve confused him with was the secret lover of the deceased, and he gets in touch with her sister, the desirable Carina. Beginning with the initial curiosity, the novel grows and branches out, directly talking to us about loneliness, love and the everyone’s capacity for reinvention and self-deception.

    José Ovejero (Madrid, 1958) lives in Madrid and Brussels. He writes novels, stories, essays and travelogues. Among others, he has published China para hipocondríacos (Premio Grandes Viajeros 1998), Las vidas ajenas (novel, Premio Primavera 2005), Nunca pasa nada (Alfaguara, 2007), La comedia salvaje (Alfaguara, 2009, Premio Ramón Gómez de la Serna 2010), Escritores delincuentes (Alfaguara, 2011) and La ética de la crueldad (Premio Anagrama de Ensayo 2012).
