Cinco horas con Mario

Cinco horas con Mario / Five Hours With Mario

Novel , 1966


Menchu has just lost her husband, Mario, and holds a wake over his body throughout the night. Some underlined paragraphs in the Bible that Mario kept in his bedside table unleash in Menchu a wave of memories and a dense, jumbled monologue in which she reassesses the life they shared, and all the understanding and lack of understanding there was between them.
