Item description for El animal moribundo = The Dying Animal by Philip Roth...

Kepesh is a reputable cultural critic whom, even in his sixties, recruits his students as lovers. One of them is Consuelo, a beautiful twenty-four year-old. The story is woven between the present and the memories of the past: during the sexual revolution of the Sixties, revolution which he took advantage of to leave his family and radically reject any sentimental commitment. Now he faces a passionate relationship with Consuelo, whose intensity is almost unbearable because of how close he feels death.

Description in Spanish: David Kepesh, a sus ochenta aos, confiesa a un personaje desconocido una de sus ltimas experiencias sentimentales: la que mantuvo con Consuelo Castillo, una joven cubana, casi cincuenta aos ms joven que l.

Desde que la revolucin de los sesenta lo liber de sus ataduras familiares, Kepesh, profesor universitario, famoso periodista, un hombre seductor, inteligente y culto, ha vivido al margen de cualquier compromiso. Y tiene una rica fuente para sus conquistas dentro de sus propias clases. A las puertas de la vejez, la vitalidad y la hermosura de Consuelo enfrentarn al protagonista con el significado de su vida.
