Summary

Esta novela supone el gran descubrimiento para los lectores de una narradora deslumbrante, miembro de la comunidad intelectual más progresista de Nueva York.

Nuestro pasado reciente sigue escondiendo muchos momentos de oscuridad entre sus pliegues ocultos. Marta López Luaces se atreve a bucear en uno de ellos en esta novela feminista, única y valiente hasta las últimas consecuencias.

En el periodo final del franquismo, una mujer es confinada en un siniestro hospital psiquiátrico después de haber sido acusada de asesinar a su madre. A través de su mirada y de la de las mujeres con las que comparte su encierro -muchas de ellas ingresadas por sus propias familias sin más motivo que el de no encajar con el modelo femenino de la época-, López Luaces nos conduce a través de una historia que -aun difícil de creer por la crueldad que implica-, está basada en sucesos reales.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This novel unveils a dazzling new narrator, member of the most progressive intellectual community in New York.

Our recent past keeps hiding many dark moments among its hidden folds. Marta López Luaces dares to dive into the depths of one of them in this unique, brave, feminist novel.

Near the end of Francoism, a woman is confined in a sinister psychiatric hospital after having been accused of killing her mother. Through her eyes and those of the women she shares her confinement with—many of them admitted by their own families for little more than not fitting in with the feminine standard of the time—López Luaces leads us through a story that, while difficult to believe for the cruelty it entails, is based on real events.
