This is a novel about failure and salvation. The semi-autobiographical novel is about Julio Mendez, a Chilian novelist in his fifties, who was exiled to Spain and is obsessed with his lack of literary success. "El jardin de al lado" is a stunning example of Donoso's gift for optical illusion, where things are not always what they appear to be, while at the same time, tragically, they are.
