Summary

LA REVELACIÓN DE UNA ESCRITORA SECRETA

«Profundidad temática, prosa sonora e imágenes expresivas.»- Juan de Marsilio, El País

«Una escritora de la talla de Elena Garro.»- Eudald Espluga, Playground

Un joven samurái dividido entre la tradición y el deseo; un legendario condotiero que rememora en su lecho de muerte los instantes más significativos de su infancia; una niña en busca del paraíso; un apasionado paleontólogo a las puertas de un gran hallazgo. Los relatos que reúne este libro, ilustrados por una veintena de obras de Alessandro Kokocinski, quien halló inspiración en el cuento que cierra el volumen, reflexionan sobre temas universales como el arrepentimiento, la culpa, el perdón, la pérdida de la inocencia y la finitud de la vida, y revelan a María Kodama como una cuentista de gran agudeza y sensibilidad.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A young samurai split between tradition and desire; a legendary condottiero who on his deathbed recalls the most significant moments of his childhood; a girl in search of paradise; a passionate paleontologist facing a great discovery. The stories gathered in this book, illustrated by about twenty works by Alessandro Kokocinski, reflect on universal themes such as remorse, guilt, forgiveness, loss of innocence, and life’s limits and boundaries, and reveal Maria Kodama as a storyteller of great sharpness and sensitivity.
