Summary

La nueva novela de la autora de La hija de la española, ganadora del Grand Prix Madame Figaro y finalista del Literaturpreis: el último fenómeno de la literatura en español.

Angustias Romero cruza la frontera huyendo. Su marido, aquejado por la fiebre, apenas pudo ayudarla a cargar las cajas de zapatos donde llevaban a sus bebés muertos en la travesía, antes de abandonarla en El tercer país, el cementerio ilegal de la mítica Visitación. Amigas y a veces rivales, las dos mujeres lucharán contra un paisaje hostil donde la única ley la dictan los que van armados, donde el tiempo es marcado por los peces, las fiestas y los misteriosos juguetes que alguien deja en la tumba de los niños, mientras el peligro y la violencia crecen hasta el último minuto borrando los límites entre la vida y la muerte.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A new novel by Karina Sainz Borgo, author of La hija de la española / It Would Be Night in Caracas, winner of the Grand Prix Madame Figaro and finalist of the Literaturpreis: the latest sensation in Spanish literature.
 
Angustias Romero flees by crossing the border. Her husband, stricken with fever, could barely help her carry the shoe boxes where they carried their dead babies on the journey, before leaving her in the Third Country, the illegal cemetery of the mythical Visitation. Friends and sometimes rivals, the two women will fight against a hostile landscape where the only law is dictated by those who are armed, where keeping time is done with fish, parties, and the mysterious toys that people leave in the children's graves, while danger and violence are constantly growing, blurring the boundaries between life and death.
