Waiting in her room, a woman begins to evoke, through writing, a love story that has left her deeply marked. He wants to write it in order to conjure it, so that it is, this time, just like he is missing it, far from the great pain it caused him. Remember Vera, for whom I experience jealousy, hate and desire, the need for revenge ... Wait for Renata - Vera's old lover - who she falls in love with, with whom she begins a new story. With this starting point, Sylvia Molloy undertakes an acute and intense exploration of desire, memory, sexual identity and abandonment. A great novel in which writing becomes the search for the self in all its diversity, a land where pleasure and pain communicate, in a lively and captivating way.
