Review by: Susan Wells Bennett on April 07, 2011 :
I read this short story/novella in one sitting. While I have to say that the translation could use a little refining, it is an excellent snapshot of homosexuality at a time when psychology considered it a disease. The story of both the doctor's and the patient's struggle with Machito's sexuality is poignant and believable. In a lot of ways, this reads like a case study -- which, I suppose, it is. Well worth my time, both as a reader and a writer.
