Part of the novel (letters sent across Europe or the Atlantic) would be scenes at Cesar Vallejo's grave in the Montparnasse cemetery. They had originally gone out to Montrouge on the metro, passing into the (postcolonial) sidewalks through the Gare du Nord, after having seen Peruvian musicians in the echoed, arched in blue tiles hallways. As in The Autograph Man Zadie Smith describes a "cat-faced" Peruvian musician, one reads, an aspect of travel. For music.
