  My Tender Matador. Irriverente, appassionata e commovente. Essays, Articles, and Speeches, Chile 29 Sobre el fondo, es una historia simple: I have read absolutely nothing that compares to this book. It looks like the last great city of the southern hemisphere. I, on the other hand, thought it was perfect. I enjoyed some of the theatrics. The novel culminates a few days before the anniversary of Pinochet's rise to power, when Carlos and his comrades carry out their dramatic attack.
