Teoria de la gravedad by Leila Guerriero
Ediciones del Asteroide (second edition 2021)
In this selection of columns, written over more than five years at Spanish newspaper El País, Leila Guerriero (
1967), one of the great names of Latin American narrative journalism, places herself in the sight.
What are these texts about? Among many other things "of the size of the aridity of our hearts. Of cabbages and kings and why the sea boils and if pigs have wings. Of the horror of love when it ends. Of all the things that were made to remember, those that were made to never forget (the pain, the dear dead, that afternoon in the sand) and that, however, we have forgotten forever".
