From Argentina to Italy, the intense, metaphysical and poetic story of a gardener in love, by Italy’s most prominent writer.
“A man’s life lasts as long as three horses. You have already buried the first.”
Somewhere along the coastline of Italy, a man passes his days in solitude and silence, tending a garden and reading books of travel and adventure. Through these simple routines he seeks to quiet the painful memories of the past: a life on the run from Argentina’s Dirty War; a young bride ‘disappeared’ by the military; a terrifying escape through the wilds of Patagonia.
