The fate of a girl who suffers from her parents’ conflicts is at the center of the family novel by Pilar Quintana, »one of the most powerful new voices from Latin America« [DLF Kultur]. The girl searches for a path to freedom and a different life in the tension between childhood fears and the abysses of the adult world. »Colombian author Pilar Quintana exposes deep human longings and abysses behind the cliché« [SZ].
