"El viejo soldado" is a novel centering around Raúl, an Argentine exiled in Madrid with his wife and young son. A lieutenant colonel requires his services to write his memories before he dies. This work leads Raúl to question: what is it that turns a man into a torturer and a murderer, if his memories are the same as any other man? This narrative explores piety and hate as masks that hide one's own failure and self-pity.
