Isabel del Rio Bundle: A Woman Alone + Dolorem Ipsum: Poetry in a time of pain

1- A Woman Alone by Isabel del Rio

A Woman Alone is a memoir in English with quotes and excerpts in Spanish. It includes the fragmented story of a life lived between two countries, two languages, two cultures. With the spectre of the Spanish Civil War hovering over many of the recollections in the book, this memoir tells the journey from a chequered past in a fascist dictatorship to a hopeful if challenging future where the protagonist affirms her identity both as a woman and as a writer.

2 - Dolorem Ipsum: Poetry in a time of pain by Isabel del Rio

A brief text by Cicero has become the basis of all printed books: a blueprint, a guiding light, the path to lead us exactly where we need to be. Dolorem ipsum is a poetry collection written in a time of pain and loss by Spanish author Isabel del Rio. From what our destiny has become to the mind games we need to play in order to survive; from losing our sense of belonging to the turmoil this pandemic has created; not forgetting love poems and apocryphal stories to take us through to the next stage, if there ever is one; with a quick succession of 'flatliner' poems and aphoristic triptychs, interspersed with comments on language and a few pieces of advice for these trying times.
