Description

‘This novel is a jewel … one of those books that enters the soul, which it is impossible not to be conquered by. It is a masterpiece like few others’ Huffington Post

Miguel and Alicia fall quietly in love as teenagers, walking back from school together. When Lucas – enigmatic, charismatic – arrives, everything changes, and Miguel is certain he has lost Alicia. Yet, against the odds, she marries him. Now, eleven years later, their marriage has begun to fray, and Alicia sets out to see Lucas again.

As each member of this strange love triangle tells their side of what happened, an unforgettable story of desire, deception and tragic misunderstanding unfolds.

Publisher Review

How do you stun a reader forever, in just 100 pages? You can find out by reading Mario Benedetti ... The novel casts a perfect, geometric figure * Il Fatto Quotidiano * Benedetti descends into that equivocal zone in which gestures, silences and words can represent, with the same effectiveness, both hate and love, piety and indifference [...] This novel is a jewel, small but precious, of the ancient sort which, usually, are handed down from generation to generation and which over time continue to shine in the eyes of all who see them [...] A story about love, friendship and ambiguity, an extraordinary fresco on loneliness and passing time, an intense and beautiful book, one of those books that enters the soul, which it is impossible not to be conquered by. It is a masterpiece like few others. Do not let it escape * Huffington Post Italia * Splendid, stunning * La Stampa * Finally, Who Among Us arrives in Italy * Il Sole * Mario Benedetti was one of the greatest Latin American writers of the twentieth century ... Who Among Us pays remarkable attention to the most subtle nuances of psychological complexities * Le Devoir * Fascinating and original * Oubliette Magazine *
