Overview

Una escritora -"la catadora de océanos"- se encuentra en la playa con una enigmática mujer que se hace llamar "la cazadora de astros". De regreso descubre que esa mujer es Remedios Varo, una pintora surrealista desaparecida treinta años atrás. Así se inicia esta mágica historia donde se cruzan dos vidas separadas en el tiempo pero unidas por el espíritu. Remedios Varo es una de las grandes artistas de todos los tiempos, que vivió la explosión de las vanguardias en la España de los años veinte, compartió las travesuras lúdicas de la Residencia de Estudiantes junto a jóvenes como Salvador Dalí y, posteriormente, participó con intensidad en los círculos surrealistas del París de entreguerras sintiendo el amor y el sexo con la misma libertad que su arte. Huyendo de la ocupación nazi, recala, como tantos españoles, en el México de Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera y de la pintora inglesa Leonora Carrington. Su última aventura surrealista, escribiendo cartas a desconocidos elegidos al azar, es la punta del iceberg de una vida a contracorriente de las convenciones. Mientras tanto, la protagonista, inspirada por la experiencia de la creadora española, se enfrentará a la violencia de su marido, un escritor venerado por el gobierno cubano. Y a pesar de las barreras que las separan, compartirá con Remedios Varo mucho más que sus ansias de libertad. Una evocadora y hermosa novela sobre el amor y el placer, la vigilia y el sueño, el tiempo y la memoria, en torno a dos mujeres entrelazadas en el punto exacto donde los astros se zambullen en el mar.
