Camilo uses crutches, his parents are always fighting, the heat is oppressive. Everything changes when his father brings a mysterious boy, Cosme, to live with them. This is a moving novella of first love and loss, perfect to read in one sitting.
Love perpetuates the human race, protects us from sterility and the deadliest solitudes. Hate is bigger, has more tentacles and speaks with more mouths than love. Love is a physiological function; hate is a sublime and furious hunger. It's the reason we're the dominant species on our planet. Hate is the perpetration of the species.
