He once wrote a novel about the impossibility of love, but since then he has been able to write nothing, and a nervous breakdown has meant that he has not even been able to put pen to paper. He has, in short, become a Bartleby, so named after the scrivener in Herman Melvilles short story who, when asked to do anything, always replied, I would prefer not to. One day Marcelo sets out to make a search through literature for all those other possible Bartlebys who, for whatever reason, have had the urge to say No, and with this in mind he has the engaging notion of keeping a diary and writing footnotes to an invisible text.
