Summary

La esperada nueva novela de la premiada autora de Aprender a hablar con las plantas, aclamada porla crítica y los lectores y traducida a varios idiomas.

«Se ha comparado a Marta Orriols con Alice Munro y Margaret Atwood. No es descabellada la comparación.» -Enrique Martín, EITB

Dani, guionista, y Marta, fotógrafa con inquietudes artísticas, viven en Barcelona y llevan juntos desde hace relativamente poco cuando descubren que están esperando un hijo. La noticia los sume en un limbo de dudas que les hará repensarse como individuos y como pareja. Él, huérfano de padre, tendrá que enfrentarse a la promesa que se hizo años atrás de nunca abandonar a su hijo. Y ella, que nació en el seno de una familia modélica, no siente deseo de ser madre y quiere mudarse a Berlín para cumplir sus sueños. ¿Qué hacer con el dolor que nace de un sentimiento que uno ignoraba albergar? ¿Cómo dar voz a un deseo reprimido? ¿Son las ambiciones profesionales igual de válidas que el deseo de formar una familia?

Adentrándose en las emociones más íntimas, Marta Orriols nos invita a explorar las contradicciones que surgen ante la posibilidad de ser padres y a huir del pensamiento simple para observar los límites de la voluntad, el instinto y la libertad, en una historia repleta de matices y aristas que confirma su gran talento narrativo, que la ha hecho merecedora de varios premios literarios.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The long-awaited new novel by the award-winning author of Learning to Talk to Plants / Aprender a hablar con las plantas, acclaimed by critics and readers, and translated into various languages.
 
«Marta Orriols has been compared to Alice Munro and Margaret Atwood. The comparison is not unreasonable. " -Enrique Martín, EITB
 
Dani, a screenwriter, and Marta, a photographer with artistic inklings, live in Barcelona and have been together only for a short while when they find out that they are expecting. The news plunges them into a limbo of doubts that will make them rethink everything as individuals and as a couple. He who grew up without a father, will have to face the promise he made years ago never to abandon any child he may have. And she, who was born into a model family, has no desire to be a mother and wants to move to Berlin to fulfill her dreams. What to do with the pain that arises from a feeling that she didn’t know she had? How to allow repressed desires to come to light? Are career ambitions as acceptable as the desire to start a family?
 
Delving into the most intimate emotions, Marta Orriols invites us to explore the contradictions that arise from the possibility of being parents, in a story full of nuances which only confirm her great narrative talent that has made her worthy of several literary awards.
