La ruta de los hospitales

Alfagura, 2019, 140 pp

As the mother, a dietician, drives from one hospital to another, she talks to her daughter. As she waits for her mother who visiting the kitchens and talking to patients, the little girl wanders around the gardens, or sneaks into the wards. The mother’s voice travels through the past, projects into the future.

In the most exquisite writing, Gloria Peirano triesto draw the subtle borders between illness and health, and between presence and absence.
