Flaptekst van het boek van de Chileense schrijfster Katya Adaui
The mysteries of kinship (families born into and families made) take disconcerting and familiar shapes in these refreshingly frank short stories. A family is haunted by a beast that splatters fruit against its walls every night, another undergoes a near-collision with a bus on the way home from the beach. Mothers are cold, fathers are absent—we know these moments in the abstract, but Adaui makes each as uncanny as our own lives: close but not yet understood.
Katya Adaui was born in Lima in 1977. She is the author of the books of short stories Geografía de la oscuridad (Geography of Obscurity), Aquí hay icebergs (Here Be Icebergs), Algo se nos ha escapado (Something Escaped Us) and the novel Nunca sabré lo que entiendo (I’ll Never Know What I Understand). She has also written the children’s books Patichueca and Muy Muy en Bora Bora. She holds a Masters in Creative Writing from the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero in Argentina. She lives in Buenos Aires where she teaches writing workshops.
