With its quirky, personal tone, the Spanish writer Juan José Millás adds a touch of humour to an original narrative thread. His novel, Que nadie duerma, tells the story of the life that Lucía makes for herself after losing her job. She becomes a taxi driver, accompanied by a tune from a Puccini opera, with which she strongly identifies. She hopes one day to pick up her former neighbour, a man who has disappeared and who was the love of her life. The real world and the main character’s inner world are separated by a very fine line indeed. Millás will talk about the creative process involved in inventing Lucía’s world. In conversation with the Argentinean journalist Mónica Maristain.
