Leaving the United States after a personal tragedy, a man finds himself in the small country of Andorra, which is bizarrely influenced by his imagination and begins to reflect his past

Blackwell North Amer
After a devastating personal tragedy, a man leaves the United States to begin life abroad. The country in which he finds himself is inordinately influenced by his imagination, and the events there are eerily reminiscent of his past, especially when he begins to fall in love with two women simultaneously.
Andorra is a small country, populated (almost exclusively) by the ancient Mrs. Reinhardt, who outlives her lifetime lease on the penthouse of the Hotel Excelsior; the Dents, an Australian couple who share a first name, a huge dog, and a secret; Sophonsobia Quay, the kayaking matriarch of the powerful Quay family; her two beautiful but troubled daughters; Esmeralda St. Pitt, who runs a boardinghouse for those with impeccable moral credentials; Ali, the fatalistic purveyor of coffee; and Alexander Fox, who finds himself not only in a foreign country but also in a crisis of faith, conscience, and identity.

I'm pretty sure the Andorra in this book bears little resemblance to the actual country. However, it is an intriguing story with vivid details. I would describe it as realist surrealism, kind of like Haruki Murakami. I enjoyed it.
