The impact of the Second World War and the political conflicts in Argentina fuel this novel by Onetti, which anticipates imaginary characters and spaces that will populate his later works.
A group of outcasts, whose only desire is to flee from the worn and dirty River Plate capital that no longer attracts them, wanders around a Polynesian island, Faruru, which is the only place in the world where you can do nothing without causing it. wrong to anyone and without anyone being interested... A paradise for dreams that ends up succumbing to harsh reality.
