Error rating book. Refresh and try again. Elogio da Madrasta by Mario Vargas Llosa. There are some fashionable paradigms in the world: First. They say that life begins at age 40 Second.
Sex in marriage becomes boring over time. In the book In Praise of the Stepmother the Peruvian Mario Vargas signs down on the first paradigm and highlights it even more, showing the almost ninfeed voluptuousness of the forty-year-old Dona Lucrecia who as a virgin flower awakens to life having her first experience with the bee that eagerly sucks its nectar to produce honey.
It demystifies the second paradigm with true epistemological verses written in peculiar prose. Unashamedly makes an apology for sex in marriage making it very clear that the alcove can serve as an ideal setting to house lovers eager for luxuriance that emanates from bodies that are not ashamed to indulge in reciprocal caresses and that matrimonial sex besides producing sighs, sweats, cries, groans, pleasures, joys.
It also produces a miracle because it counts on the complicity of God, who blesses the coitus of loving lovers. And she is perfectly happy because the copulation in the marriage bed is not boring. But as in life not everything is joys, the devil insists on putting his wooden spoon and tries to spoil the love of the characters, that presented until then perfect and as the diabolical Devil is not original, throws of the old but always effective adultery.
