Summary:
Was I the one who had to make you happy? Is that what you expected from me? Is that what people should expect from each other? So little? Mike is a young student and artist; he is sickly, weak, and indecisive. With Mia he finds himself submerged in the storm of a clumsy love filled with French films and Pearl Jam songs. A university strike leads them to start fighting for a better world. In their determination to root out past injustices, shed a light and punish the savage ideologies of past dictators, Mike surprisingly realizes that life has left him behind. Then there is Eugenio, an unpunished genocide, who with the vigor of a young person finds hope when facing death. Neither he nor Mia, nor his brother in prison, prevent the protagonist of this novel - a novel filled with political history and nostalgia - from challenging a complicated present and discovering what the poet wrote: that life was real and not a dress rehearsal.
