The Strongest Passion. Luis Zapata. Clary Loisel, Ph.D., Translator from Spanish. ISBN:0-915745-76-3. $23.95.
Using only dialogue as its narrative technique, Luis Zapata recounts the story of his protagonist Santiago, a middle-aged businessman hopelessly in love with Arturo, a 19-year-old teenager, who is the son of Sarita, his best friend. Through skillful and entertaining dialogues during their courtship, which continue once the conquest is achieved, the novel reflects the deep generational chasm between the characters.
