Overview

Based on the author’s own life, this acclaimed novel is as much a long love letter as it is a widower’s desperate attempt to conserve every detail of a deceased wife through the love of literature that they both shared. In 2005 Goldman married a promising young Mexican writer, Aura Estrada. Right before their second wedding anniversary, Aura suffered a tragic accident while swimming in the waters off the coast of Oaxaca and died in a hospital in Mexico City. Devastated by his loss, and blamed by Aura’s family for her death, the author was consumed by his pain. With this novel, he reconstructs his abbreviated love story, in which the deepest form of love and the pain caused by its loss converge in an exceptional synthesis.

 

Basada en la vida del propio autor, esta galardonada novela es tanto una larga carta de amor como el intento desesperado de un viudo por conservar cada detalle de su fallecida esposa a través de la pasión por la literatura compartida por ambos. En 2005 Goldman se casó con una prometedora joven escritora mexicana, Aura Estrada. Poco antes de su segundo aniversario de bodas, Aura sufrió un terrible accidente nadando en las playas de Oaxaca y murió en un hospital en la Ciudad de México. Devastado por la pérdida, y culpado por la familia de Aura de su muerte, el autor se sumergió en una espiral de dolor. Con esta novela, reconstruye su historia de amor truncada, donde el amor más profundo y el dolor que ocasiona su pérdida confluyen en una excepcional síntesis.
