In the late 19th century, Paris was bustling at the artistic height of the Belle Époque, with writers living the bohemian life, music and the Moulin Rouge. It is there that José Miurá and Elizabeth Limantour meet and fall in love, but their decision to follow separate paths comes at a high price. Locura y razón tells of their ups and downs, which culminate in the creation of a universe where, in the end, the only thing that matters is the search for redemptive, loving madness. The novel is set against a backdrop of Mexican and European history, of revolution, political betrayals and covert power struggles for control over oil assets.
