Overview

Martín Santomé, viudo con tres hijos, en las vísperas de su jubilación comienza a registrar en un diario íntimo su vida gris y sin relieve. La vida cotidiana de la rutina oficinesca y la de un hogar desunido y crispado se verán alteradas cierto día, cuando irrumpe en su opaca existencia la joven Laura Avellaneda, nueva empleada a sus órdenes. Y ese cincuentón, consciente de sus límites y de su desgana, decide abrir, casi sin proponérselo, un paréntesis luminoso

Well written. Probably best Benedetti's book.

The author kindly depicts the feelings of hope and despair that encase a middle-aged man in Uruguay. His need for companionship, his silence and his most terrible losses. Simply Beautiful!
