I read this book, an excellent novella, earlier this week and I can't stop thinking about it. Did Santiago actually do it? Ambiguous endings are usually pretty lame, same with first person narratives, but you could tell from the get go you'd never get a straight answer. It was so well executed on both fronts.
I personally think he did. Seems just like every other small town where everyone is sleeping with each other surreptitiously, while they occupy a higher morality in public.
This Was my first gabo, I picked it up at a used bookstore last week. Are his longer works just as good or better? I might read it again soon because it's so short. I'll definitely be reading more of his work.
