FICTION Ella, que todo lo tuvo. (Ella, Who Had It All) Becerra, Ángela. Mexico: Planeta. 2009. 422p. ISBN 978-607-07-0143-6. pap. $21.95. FICTION Colombian Becerra is a well-known and widely read novelist, particularly in Spain. Formerly a creative director in advertising, she left her career behind and turned to literature, publishing a poetry collection in 2001 and her first novel two years later. In this, her third, winner of the III Premio Planeta Casamérica, a writer named Ella has ended up alone in Florence after possibly killing her husband and child by accident. The plethora of characters and events can be a bit overwhelming: schizophrenia, prostitution, death, voyeurism, and historical reconstruction are only a few of the themes touched upon, some for no apparent reason. Still, the prose is well executed, and Becerra’s capabilities and her extensive knowledge of Latin American fiction and poetry, which are quoted throughout, are evident and enriching. A great beach read; recommended for all bookstores and large library collections.—Sophie Lavoie, Univ. of New Brunswick, Fredericton
