Leopoldo Alas

His Only Son

With Dona Berta

€ 19.95

In His Only Son, Bonifacio Reyes, a romantic flautist by vocation--and a failedclerk and kept husband by necessity--dreams of a novelesque life. Tied to his shrill and sickly wife by her purse strings, he enters timidly into a love affair with Serafina, a seductive second-rate opera singer, encouraged by her manager who mistakes Bonifacio for a potential patron. Meanwhile, Bonifacio`s wife experiences a parallel awakening and in the midst of a long-barren marriage, surprises them both with a son--but is it Bonifacio`s?
