Dile que no estoy
Alejandra Costamagna

NOVEL | 2012 | 122 pages

A young man, age 20, travels with his father from Chile to Tacna in order to get his teeth fixed. On the way there, over the backdrop of the interminable road and the arid landscape, he begins to remember his lonely childhood, the almost unspeakable relationship he has with his mother, and the countless times in which he was told that he needed to lose weight. Camanchaca—which is also the coastal fog that is abundant and plentiful in the North of Chile—is about the fragility of a family, its secrets, its lies and the country where it all takes place. A vastly intimate book, a catharsis, a poetic victory.
