Buenos Aires, 1930’s. The Finnish statistician Op Oloop leads a methodical, disciplined life, though he spends his time in expensive restaurants and Turkish baths, with a circle of weird friends. But on a particular April 22, everything changes: a small traffic delay makes him arrive a few minutes late, despite his mania for punctuality, to his engagement party.This produces a turbulent race against time and against fate. The novel describes in careful detail the proceedings of a day in which the protagonist goes through a series of hilarious, absurd situations before his bachelor party banquet, a celebration of Op Oloop’s thousandth visit to the local brothels.
