Synopsis:

A fascinating journey through the thousand and one stories hidden in the emblematic neighborhood of Barceloneta, a love letter to the neighborhood of the author’s childhood and with it, to the city of Barcelona.

Iturbe is a physicist specializing in neutrinos who returns to Barceloneta, the neighborhood where he grew up, for a settling of emotional accounts after two decades abroad. Walking down its streets again, he will discover, among tourist apartments, multinational chains, and the progressive disappearance of the people who have always lived there, the barest vestiges of his memories, and with his childhood friend González, he will have to rescue his past as he learns the fate of other members of his generation.

The Infinite Shore is a novel that serves as a sentimental guide to the lifestyle and backstreets of Barcelona in the last half of the twentieth century; a melancholic love letter to a neighborhood and a city that will never return; a defense of the power of the imagination, of literature, of fiction to fill in a portrait of the last half-century of Spanish history.

A love letter to Barceloneta and Barcelona; a novel about the power of memory and the passage of time.
