|Plot Summary of The Notebooks of Don Rigoberto|
|" By day, Rigoberto is a regular kind of man working in an insurance company. By night, he writes notebooks of thoughts and fantasies, about the people, books and paintings he either love or hate. Writing fulfills his day as much as his daily job allows him a decent living.
However, he hasn't recovered from the day he kicked his second wife Lucrecia out of home, when he found she had sexual relations with his son Fonchito. Fonchito was half-responsible, and now he's trying to make it up to them, looking for Lucrecia. When she lets the child stay in her home, Fonchito reveals he hasn't lost his awakened sexuality, having great interest in the erotic paintings and drawings of Egon Schiele.
Rigoberto goes after his son and confronts Lucrecia. They know that love for each other is still there, and Rigoberto forgives her. The three members decide they must learn to handle Fonchito's behaviour (which seems a menace to Rigoberto and Lucrecia's marriage). The question on how long will this be possible remains floating in playful mood."
Augusto Wong Campos, Resident Scholar
