A true story: a few years ago I bought a handbag in a local auction in Valencia. It cost me a euro.
When I got it home, I found a several documents inside the bag.
Among them, two letters dated 1946. Letters never sent.
The author announced his imminent suicide, because of the negative effects of the war, of prison and the loss of his family.
