Romina Paula

 FICTION | 2016 | 227 pages

Andrea, the narrator and protagonist of this story witnesses her father's agony while locking herself up in a present crossed by hidden and not-so-hidden passages: memories that slide towards the future.

Romina Paula's writing attempts against ontological dominance and arrogance. In this, much like his previous novels, it turns language into the mutable, the unpresentable, the indefinable. Her characters aren't as much as they are becoming and acquiring substance thanks to the uniqueness of a voice whose roots are intertwined with pain and darkness, lightness and a sense of humor. They zigzag, they search, they ask, they are on the side of those who prefer not to know.
