ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Perhaps Mario Bellatin's most personal novel. True to his style, in Portrait of Mussolini and Family, Mario Bellatin brings us a book provocative in its rawness and sincerity. A man about to die. A priest who arrives to give him his Last Rites. Love blooms between them. Nothing will stop them--not imminent death, nor vows, nor the fragile figure of the dying man: the man with only one arm lies in bed, flies already swarming. The cassock, the crucifix, pants, and underwear have been tossed into the corner of the room. Finally, love. Is death the final infatuation, the reconciliation with those who have gone before? The man with one arm will be reunited with his mother. Since he was born, she knew that he would never forgive her, that she would have to protect herself from her son's anger, and she had to seek out the priest's collusion. "He will never forgive us," she told him from the foot of the crib. "Have you ever in your life seen a newborn like that? We always knew that after the murder, anything could happen."
