Summary

La memoria de las estrellas. La memoria de una madre. Y la de su hija. La memoria de un pueblo. Cómo recordamos. Por qué. Para qué. Un ensayo emocionante.
 
Acompañando a su madre en sus exámenes neurológicos, la narradora de este libro advierte que la actividad cerebral proyectada en el monitor tiene muchas similitudes con las imágenes astronómicas que conoce. A partir de esa constatación, Nona Fernández comienza en este, su primer ensayo, a escudriñar en los mecanismos de la memoria estelar y la humana.
 
Tomando nota de todo lo que lee, observa y piensa, al modo de las Voyager, esas sondas exploratorias del espacio, Fernández va vinculando ese registro a su propia historia y a la del país, planteando con inteligencia cuestiones que son de ahora y de siempre. Cómo recuerdan las estrellas y las personas son interrogantes que inevitablemente llevan a preguntarse cómo recuerdan los pueblos, y cómo olvidan, y Nona Fernández las aborda con la sagacidad y el ímpetu que caracterizan su obra.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The stars’ memory. A mother’s memory. And that of her daughter. A nation’s memory. How we remember. Why. For what purpose. An emotional essay.
 
Accompanying her mother during her neurological exams, the narrator of this book notices that the brain activity projected on the monitor is very similar to the astronomical images with which she’s familiar. From that finding, Nona Fernández begins in this, her first essay, to scrutinize the mechanisms of stellar and human memory.
 
Taking note of everything she reads, observes and thinks, in the manner of Voyager, with these exploratory space probes, Fernández is linking that record to her own history and that of the country, intelligently raising issues that are relevant now and forever. How the stars remember and how people remember are questions that inevitably lead to wondering how nations remember, and how they forget, and Nona Fernández addresses them with the sagacity and momentum that characterize her work.
