Original Title: La danza del sol

What with the economic crisis, loneliness, and lack of communication life is getting harder and harder so the Moscardó family decides to get away from their daily grind and spend a weekend at the coast. In the Solymar Hotel they will be drawn into the vicissitudes and conflicts of the other guests and employees, and the inexorable, merciless tragedy looming over their lives. In this extraordinary poetic, powerful, choral novel, Isabel Alba offers a multifaceted view of a fragmented world in which the collision of many different viewpoints seems preordained.

J. Ernesto Ayala-Dip, El País -Babelia
