'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.

"Este libro reúne los mejores poemas de amor de Mario Benedetti. Muchos de ellos están a flor de labio en la gente, que los recuerda de memoria o los tiene en mente a la hora de garabatear un verso; otros se han convertido en canciones y hasta graffitis. Pocos poetas han logrado establecer semejante lazo con el público, saltar las barreras que suelen separar el arte de la vida y decir, con una voz original, aquello que es patrimonio de todos. Su popularidad es sólo comparable a la de Pablo Neruda, Federigo Gacía Lorca o Antonio Machado. La poesía de Benedetti renueva el lenguaje de los sentimientos y demuestra que el amor, esa fuerza emblemática de la vida que encarnan las mujeres, es el único elemento que sirve para enfrentar a la muerte, "--Back cover
