starts in Madrid in the early seventies during the last years of the very strict and
conservative Franco regime and involves characters directly linked to the social
and political establishment.
It has been a short, pure, explosive, and at the same time, dramatic relation that
left enduring memories and scars in the surviving partner.
It is written forty years later-this means in the present time-by the surviving
partner, in an utterly poetic and moving style.
As it is said in the text,
durable relations sometimes do not take a long time to consolidate
they may well be quickly built in very robust terms and also quickly destroyed
often all done by the same actors in absolute voluntary terms
human nature is surely volatile or even very treacherous
