Xavier Decides To Stop A Killing--a story about love, longing, and all those other monsters--is not your usual literary romance. You've been warned. More
One blood-soaked night of chaos in 1970, fifty-something Alberto Paredes finds himself in a room with Carmen, a 16-year-old political activist. It should have been a night of passionate abandon, while outside the room bloodshed rages, but no--Alberto, in the accidental company of a "nymphet," is stunned and powerless, and this failure at what he thinks is a "final romance" will haunt him to the end of his days. The implications of Alberto's desire reverberate through the subsequent three decades of his search for meaning, purpose and redemption, only to arrive at his friend Xavier's doorstep in the form of a dying man's last request: find her. But little does Xavier know that he will soon have to grapple with the rough, calloused horns of a dilemma--a dilemma that threatens to take away the things he holds dear and leaves him asking that most important Shakespearean question fools ask themselves: why did he ever kiss that girl?
Xavier Decides To Stop A Killing--a story about love, longing, and all those other monsters--is not your usual literary romance. You've been warned.
