“It is known that it is the first book by Leticia Obeid. A long story that narrates Elena’s adventures: after a hangover party in Buenos Aires, she takes a bus to her hometown. The plan is to stay a few days, perhaps to recover emotionally. But a mother, a dog, relatives, friends from adolescence and the town, everything seems to conspire so that Elena does not leave. Ravaged by a drought and with the threat of a storm that does not finish unleashing, the town weaves its webs. Precious descriptions, funny scenes, prose sensitive to the rhythms of speech and the senses on a journey to the center of the soul that, in the case of exiles, it is known, remains in the middle of the birthplace”.
