1 - La novia de Sandro by Camila Sosa Villada

Language: ‎SPANISH (Argentina)

'To cross the mysteries of transvestite love, Camila is armed with her voice of syrup and the amulets that she knew how to build in the intensity of the night. Sometimes she loves and other times she hates, she desires and she's desired, mixing sorrow and happiness in each of the bodies she's spilled. For that she engenders carnivorous verses and docile plants that live at the balconies that her studs inhabit. Huge magician, we can only stretch our necks to see her bleeding, burning and laughing to the world.

In her autobiography, the mother rented to another family, the fatigue of the father in his fight against poverty, the lover's beloved, the dead friends...

The reader's heart that is encouraged to travel the wild beauty of this book will not be able to escape unscathed.' Prologue by Dolores Reyes

All happy families look alike, while unhappy families are each one unique. Cecilia Czperling writes a book, a fable that seems to have been translated from her Polish ancestors and that has something in between a dream and Bruno Schultz's great stories. A powerful narrative of a unique Latin American writer that grows oscillating between a happy family and an unhappy one, between her childish candor and the start of her teenager years. (Fabián Casas)
