El mejor de los pecadosBook - 2017 | Spanish
"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.
