#65533;Hoy este viejo te hace justicia confirm#65533;ndote que fue tan feliz como sobre aquellas hojas oto#65533;ales y c#65533;mplices... Es curioso que en nuestro acto inaugural y clandestino no necesit#65533;ramos palabras, solo hablamos con nuestros cuerpos incipientes, inocentes, gozos practicantes del mejor de los pecados.#65533; Quien escribe es un hombre de m#65533;s de ochenta a#65533;os, que en una carta a una mujer anciana recuerda la primera experiencia sexual de los dos, cuando eran j#65533;venes y apenas se conoc#65533;an, y este es el cuento que cierra un #65533;lbum donde se relatan las mil maneras en que los cuerpos se encuentran o se distancian.

El #65533;lbum arranca con una historia de amor entre ni#65533;os de doce a#65533;os que se besan con los ojos abiertos y acaban cas#65533;ndose por despecho, sigue una conversaci#65533;n entre dos j#65533;venes que deciden descubrir sus cuerpos en vez de dedicarse a morir, y as#65533; sucesivamente, pasando por la edad madura, el matrimonio y la traici#65533;n, hasta llegar a la carta conmovedora que cierra el #65533;lbum.

Todo servido en la bandeja de la prosa inmensa de Mario Benedetti y acompaÑado por unas esplÉndidas ilustraciones.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"Today, I vindicate you by confirming that I was as happy as those Fall leaves where we laid upon. It's surprising that on that clandestine first meeting of our bodies we needed no words to communicate; we only spoke with our budding innocent bodies, trying for the first time the best of all sins."

The narrator is an eighty-year-old man who, on a letter to an elderly woman, remembers both of their first sexual experience when they were young and barely knew each other. This is the last story in a group that relates the many ways in which bodies can come together or grow apart.

This compilation of short stories starts with a love story among two teenagers who kiss with their eyes open and get married out of spite; it continues with a young couple that instead of letting themselves die, decide to discover their bodies; and so, it continues through to old age, marriage and betrayal, until reaching the last touching letter.

All served by Mario Benedetti's wonderful prose accompanied by great illustrations.
