Nothing in his childhood experience was so intense for Carlos when, about to enter adolescence, falls in love with the mother of his friend Jim. The story from that love initiation, of their impossible and incurable wish, now rebuilt, is also the story of the reaction of adult society in those years. And in all the behaviors that accompanied his early adolescence, the adult Carlos now discovers cracks and fractures in a world that held itself a decomposition announced. Unforgettable masterpiece in its short dimensions, such narrative precision and simplicity that offers a host of readings and levels, the battles in the desert has become, after successive reprints in a book that generation after generation has won hundreds of thousands of readers.
