Publisher's Summary

Martin Santomé, viudo con tres hijos en vísperas de su jubilación, comienza a registrar en un diario íntimo su vida gris y sin relieve. La vida cotidiana de la rutina oficinesca y la de un hogar desunido y crispado se verán alteradas cierto día, cuando irrumpe en su opaca existencia la joven Laura Avellaneda, nueva empleadaa sus órdenes. Y ese cincuentón, hombre mediano pero no mediocre, consciente de sus límites y su desgana, decide abrir, casí sin proponérselo, un paréntesis luminoso. Please note: This title is in Spanish.

My first but not last Benedetti

In Latin-American literary territories there's a thick cult around this book. That's why I decided to download it eventually. I would sincerely like to say La tregua is so fresh and modern as when it was written, but I couldn't. Nowadays it's charmingly old-fashioned and even a bit dusty. Diary entries of a 50-year-old man from Montevideo about old age, love, loss, God with a superbe couleur locale, very exotic for me. It certainly worths a listen, it's well paced, clever and profound, but I don't find it particularly significant in my life.
The style of the writing is the highest quality and the narrator is astonishingly good.
