The Pride of Youth

Pablo Simonetti

NOVEL. ALFAGUARA, 2013. 329 PAGES

Felipe Selden is a young charismatic man. Most of the people he meets find him attractive. However, family and social demands, plus his immaturity, lead him to take decisions that make him unhappy.
The Pride of Youth is a love story, a novel about affection and lack of it, and a reflection on how age determines our judgment of ourselves and our circumstances.



"La soberbia juventud (The Pride of Youth) is a "historic" fiction

about homosexuality in Chile - about that long, obscure past, that,

along with the present, can't break away from some remains of prejudice,

intolerance, racism and sexism. It is a novel showing the transit of things,

from one state to the other, never forgetting the secret beats of guilt and sin."
