On a beautiful April morning, a man is brought to an insane asylum in contemporary Spain, claiming to be the legendary navigator Christopher Columbus. Found in the treacherous Straight of Gibraltar, he is clearly delusional and has suffered a trauma so severe that he has turned away from reality. As he spins the tall tales of adventure and romance of someone who existed in the late fifteenth century, the lonely Nurse Consuela can''t help but be enchanted by his spirit. Who is Columbus? Where did he come from? This dazzling story about one man''s painstaking search for truth and loyalty will haunt the reader long after the final page.
Thomas Trofimuk should certainly expand his audience with this tale of a mysterious inmate in a Spanish insane asylum who bombards the staff with rants that he is the explorer Christopher Columbus, until the sheer passion of his conviction begins to convince them that his impossible claims may hold some truth. The man's nurse, Consuela, is particularly infatuated with him, and she listens in rapturous wonder to his tales of adventure and romantic conquest. When a doctor and an investigator from Interpol begin to uncover details of the trauma which likely caused the inmate's break from reality, Consuela must decide whether to try to help heal his shattered psyche or to nurture the fantasy which gives them both such comfort.
