El vencedor está solo is a photograph of the world we live in, captured in the form of a novel. The action, in accelerated rhythm, occurs in less than 24 hours during the Cannes Film Festival. Igor Dalev arrives in France determined to recover Ewa, his ex-wife and the great love of his life, now remarried to a stylist and star of the fashion circuit. Becoming increasingly desperateand crippled by jealousy, passion and, above all, a desire to impress Ewa, Igor becomes a serial killer. By killing innocent people, he believes he is "destroying universes" and hence demonstrating the strength of his feelings. Producers, consecrated actors, aspiring actresses, top models and stylists--all of them are portrayed in a merciless portrait of luxury and of the Superclass, the elite who, by influencing people, define the directions of our days. By providing the reader with details of how these characters--all of them based on real-life people--live and behave, Paulo Coelho turns his twelfth novel into a shrewd criticism of a world overrun by glamour and excess.
