Summary

En este libro se narran aventuras y relatos de mujeres en Nueva York. Martirio Fuentes le escribe una carta reveladora a Marta Veneranda. A partir de allí, cada página enlazará detalles y claves que irán dando vida a cada historia. Los personajes y las narraciones se suceden una tras otra; la trágica muerte de Ana, los breves y secretos encuentros amorosos de unas prisioneras políticas arrastradas por la confesión y por la traición, las situaciones eróticas de una profesora de música con el novio de una estudiante y las aventuras sexuales de una escritora en Cuba. La ciudad de Nueva York está presente en todas las historias. La autora hace gala de un excelente sentido del humor, la sorpresa atraviesa cada relato y la oralidad marca cada texto, las escenas que se cuentan harán que el lector participe mientras las escucha.
