Summary

«La fuerza que generan dos en una relación debe distribuirse: o se reparte, o uno la cede y el otro se la queda toda.»

Un productor cinematográfico sacrifica sus vicios, sus aficiones, su mascota, sus amistades y su variada y gratificante vida sexual cuando conoce a Varsovia, la mujer de pies feos a quien siente una inmediata necesidad de atarse de por vida.

Siempre se consideró un tigre, pero se da cuenta de que se ha convertido en gato doméstico.

Jordi Soler narra, con gran sentido del humor y una ácida visión satírica, a un ritmo tan vertiginoso como el ciclón que azotará a sus personajes, y sin embargo encuentra espacio para ocuparse de detalles, en apariencia insignificantes, cuya suma final los hace aparecer como lo que siempre fueron: un campo minado.

En La mujer que tenía los pies feos convergen los paraísos personales y los purgatorios colectivos; las fantasías latentes de pronto se vuelven realidades concretas que obligan a elegir, a tomar partido.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"The strength generated by two people in a relationship must be distributed: either it's dealt out, or one cedes it and the other keeps it all.
 
A movie producer sacrifices all of his vices, his likes, his pet, his friendships and his varied and gratifying sex life when he meets Varsovia, the woman with the ugly feet for whom he feels an immediate need to be tied to for life.
 
He always considered himself a tiger, but now he realizes that he's become a house cat.
 
Jordi Soler narrates, with a great sense of humor and an acidic satirical vision, at a pace as dizzying as the cyclone that will batter his characters, and nevertheless he finds space to take on the details, that appear insignificant, but whose final sum make them appear as they always were: a minefield.
 
In The Woman Who Had Ugly Feet personal paradises and collective purgatories converge: latent fantasies all of a sudden become concrete realities that force us to choose, to take sides.
