Book Overview
Hoy este viejo te hace justicia confirm ndote que fue tan feliz como sobre aquellas hojas oto ales y c mplices... Es curioso que en nuestro acto inaugural y clandestino no necesit ramos palabras, solo hablamos con nuestros cuerpos incipientes, inocentes, gozos practicantes del mejor de los pecados. Quien escribe es un hombre de m s de ochenta a os, que en una carta a una mujer anciana recuerda la primera experiencia sexual de los dos, cuando eran j venes y apenas se conoc an, y este es el cuento que cierra un lbum donde se relatan las mil maneras en que los cuerpos se encuentran o se distancian. El lbum arranca con una historia de amor entre ni os de doce a os que se besan con los ojos abiertos y acaban cas ndose por despecho, sigue una conversaci n entre dos j venes que deciden descubrir sus cuerpos en vez de dedicarse a morir, y as sucesivamente, pasando por la edad madura, el matrimonio y la traici n, hasta llegar a la carta conmovedora que cierra el lbum.Todo servido en la bandeja de la prosa inmensa de Mario Benedetti y acompa ado por unas espl ndidas ilustraciones. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Today, I vindicate you by confirming that I was as happy as those Fall leaves where we laid upon. It's surprising that on that clandestine first meeting of our bodies we needed no words to communicate; we only spoke with our budding innocent bodies, trying for the first time the best of all sins. The narrator is an eighty-year-old man who, on a letter to an elderly woman, remembers both of their first sexual experience when they were young and barely knew each other. This is the last story in a group that relates the many ways in which bodies can come together or grow apart. This compilation of short stories starts with a love story among two teenagers who kiss with their eyes open and get married out of spite; it continues with a young couple that instead of letting themselves die, decide to discover their bodies; and so, it continues through to old age, marriage and betrayal, until reaching the last touching letter.All served by Mario Benedetti's wonderful prose accompanied by great illustrations.
