Lo leí hace diez años y Alejandra y Fernando me siguen comiendo la cabeza . Sábato te encandila con su voz argentina y te desvela con sus personajes desquiciados .

Me late una canción entre las sienes cada vez que lo leo ...

¡Loco! ¡Loco! ¡Loco!
Cuando anochezca en tu porteña soledad,
por la ribera de tu sábana vendré
con un poema y un trombón
a desvelarte el corazón.

(Es inevitable)

But why are they risking everything to sabotage their own country's resources? Is the US trying to force an outcome while keeping their hands clean? With the KGB hot on their tail, it's up to Anna and the CIA to prevent an attack that could destroy the entire Arctic region, and its oil reserves, for ever.… (more)
