A very touching novel showing the beginning of Chilean period under Salvador Allende.
I had the chance to visit Neruda’s house in Isla Negra which was projected by Neruda himself: from his bedroom we can envisage the whole Pacific in front of us; the same happens with his workshop. There are plenty of personnel objects exposed and all his three houses (Valparaiso, Isla Negra and Santiago) are kept under Neruda Foundation.
I saw the corresponding movie a long time ago, Il Postino: The Postman (1994) where Phillippe Noiret plays as Pablo Neruda. I must watch it again after read this magnificent book.
