Overview

Un viaje a Chiapas, con el fin de escribir un reportaje para una revista, brinda a Camila la oportunidad de huir de la pena y de la monotonía de su vida. A sus treinta y cuatro años, los zarpazos de la vida la han alcanzado de lleno, y se siente derrumbada por la muerte de su hijo, todavía un bebé. Pero con la llegada a San Cristóbal de las Casa, la dura realidad que debe reflejar la lleva a sentirse de nuevo viva. Arrastrada por los dramáticos acontecimientos que se van sucediendo, e indecisa ante el renacimiento de la pasión amorosa, Camila se ve obligada a replantearse su vida, especialmente la relación son su madre, defensora de la democracia chilena, y con su marido, un periodista con quien abandonó Chile para vivir en Washington. Así, mientras descubre los claroscuros del M&eacutexico actual, Camila se debate entre la necesidad de reconciliarse con su pasado y el renovado impulso vital que la domina.

Un apasionado retrato de una mujer de hoy, capaz de enfrentarse a sus contradicciones y abrirse camino en un mundo extraño.

*****
A trip to Chiapas, in order to write an article for a magazine, offers Camila an opportunity to escape the grief and monotony of her life. At thirty-four, the blows of life have reached their full extent, resulting in a breakdown due to the death of her baby. But with the arrival of San Cristóbal, her hard reality is given a new life. Torn by dramatic events that occur, and undecided about beginning a passionate romance, Camila sees and obligation to redefine her life; especially her relationship with her mother, a champion of Chilean democracy, and with her mother's husband, a journalist both of whom abandoned Chile to live in Washington. So while she discovers the chiaroscuros of present-day Mexico, Camila debates the need to reconcile with her past, and the renewed vital impulse that dominates it.

A tender portrait of a present-day woman, capable of facing her own contradictions, and being an open road in a strange world.

Finalista Premio Planeta del Novela 2001.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Acclaimed Chilean writer Serrano (b. 1951) has received numerous awards, including the Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz prize for her first novel, Nosotras que nos queremos tanto (We Love Each Other So Much, Alfaguara, 2001), and was the finalist for the prestigious Premio Planeta de Novela 2001 with this latest work. In vivid and suggestive prose (she is known for her feminist and leftist undertones), she gives readers the compelling portrait of a woman who confronts her past and renews her life. An assignment to write about the Zapatista movement in Mexico's Chiapas region gives Camila the opportunity to escape her monotonous life in the United States and the memories of her late son. A series of dramatic events her friend's assassination, her kidnapping by the paramilitaries, and a love affair lead her to question the validity of her depression, as well as her relationships with her mother, an activist who crusaded against Pinochet, and her husband, a journalist for whom she left her native Chile to live in Washington, DC. In the end, the real revolution takes place not in Chiapas but in Camila's heart. Serrano's stream-of-consciousness style in the section on Camila's kidnapping works well to convey her emotional transformation and opens room for the reader's identification with her. This award-winning is highly recommended for all libraries and bookstores. Carmen Ospina, "Criticas" Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
