Reprinted with a new cover in B format, "A Life" is the gruelling tale of the frustrated existence of a bank clerk with a poetic soul. The artistic aspirations of the protagonist and the emptiness of his daily life become tragic in the great divide between what he wants and what he actually has and gets. Alfonso the bank clerk wants to be a poet and seems to be falling in love with Annetta, the vain and arrogant daughter of his boss.
But the emptiness of both his attempts at writing and at love lead to an ironic and painful conclusion.
