This first ever bilingual edition of "Only in the Meantime & Office Poems" introduces Mario Benedetti’s poetry to the English-speaking audience. Opening as reflections of everyday life in Montevideo, the poetry blossoms into an art which speaks to all people from all walks of life. Benedetti’s extraordinary handling of irony and simplicity alongside his poetry’s unmistakable rhythm make him one of the most brilliant observers of 20th century life.
