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)

Best one out of the three... in the Sabato's 3-parts novel. Brutal modern, latin-american fiction... that is. ( )
