Julia Ares has an overwhelming personality that includes a visceral rejection of hypocrisy and a mastery of verbal provocation. She also has two daughters, one of whom, the youngest, still lives with her. Between the two there is a play of affections and misunderstandings based on their supposed opposition of character. The daughter, the voice of this novel, has always considered herself the antithesis of her mother until, almost suddenly, she begins to recognise herself in her. With enormous acuity, the author achieves with her writing the rhythm of thought and shows all the psychological ambiguities of the relationship between a mother and her daughter. An agile and astute approach to the nooks and crannies of character.
