The truce by Mario Benedetti( Book )

401 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 2,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Perhaps that moment had been exceptional, but still, I felt alive. That pressure on my chest means being alive.' Forty-nine, with a kind face, no serious ailments (apart from varicose veins on his ankles), a good salary and three moody children, widowed accountant Martin Santome is about to retire. He assumes he'll take up gardening, or the guitar, or whatever retired people do. What he least expects is to fall passionately in love with his shy young employee Laura Avellaneda. As they embark upon an affair, happy and irresponsible, Martin begins to feel the weight of his quiet existence lift - until, out of nowhere, their joy is cut short

The celebrated Uruguayan writer relays the personal pain and extensive social damage brought on by authoritarian repression and exile.

Pedro and the captain : a play in four parts by Mario Benedetti( Book )

71 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A gripping dialogue between a torturer and his victim, Pedro and the Captain takes place in an interrogation room, where lives are deconstructed by the violent hand of the terrorist state. Torture, the awesome force that mediates the action, never appears directly on the scene; likewise, the repressive state is never named. Benedetti captures the essence of this dehumanizing practice without assigning it precise location or time, which speaks to the universality of the abomination, whether in Uruguay's La Libertad or the USA's Abu Ghraib." "In this compelling story one man begins life as a decent fellow and is converted into a torturer, and another, an ordinary guy with leftist political ideals, rises to the stature of martyr, preferring death over betrayal of his comrades. Benedetti's play unpacks its deep political and psychological insights with intensity, delivering humor amid great sadness, beauty together with wretchedness, and amazing commentaries on the human condition that mark this as a work of great literature."--BOOK JACKET
