Josep Maria Benet i Jornet:  LEGACY (Testament).
    Translated by Janet DeCesaris.  2000.

A terminally-ill professor entrusts his most brilliant student with the culminating work of his scholarly career. Responding to a personal ad, he discovers that the student is a male prostitute. Learning that a friend's daughter is pregnant, he discovers that the same student is the father. In a battle of wills, the professor's hopes for the future are countered by the younger man's anger.
