It is December 27, 1871, and Juan Manuel de Rosas is alone. He was forgotten by those who promised him eternal fidelity, he lacks authority and money. He does not smoke, he does not drink, he does not receive visitors, he does not leave his house. The exile in Southampton has made him a farmer, an old peasant who writes ten letters a day, who drinks mate sitting by the brazier and eats roasted meat.
The Farmer, first published in 1996, is one of the most representative novels of Andrés Rivera’s narrative. Written with an exceptional domain of prose and language, it presents in all its dimensions the features of an imposing, unique style.
