A swan song from one of Latin America's greatest storytellers, this work is rich with social conscience, humour, insight, outrage, and love. Recommended to all. - Library Journal
Entries are rarely more than a page and often much shorter, yet each is meticulously sculpted, conveying an incident, act, or idea in danger of being forgotten, and doing so with the lively and inimitable voice of a passionate rebel and storyteller. This collection of very short pieces, anecdotes, and retellings marks the final work completed by famed Uruguayan writer before his death in 2015.
