Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bite His Heart is journalist Lydia Cacho's first novel. It tolds how Soledad finds out that she carries the HIV virus, just when she is living life to the full: she's young, married to an important hotelier of Cancun and enoying the most of their two children. Three days after receiving the news, she decides to write down her feelings and to try explain to herself what is happening to her. The novel describes the torture of contradicting emotions and physical deterioration she endures, and that may cause her to die. It's not only Soledad's story, but that of many women whose husbands pass the HIV on to them. It's the story of numberless disintegrating families, of parentless children and of girls and boys whose days are numbered from birth. It's the story of a social, religious and political dilemma for which there is no agreement, whilst the problem grows and threatens to get out of control. It's the human side which statistics never reveal. A story that bites the heart . Murdele el corazn es la primera novela de la periodista Lydia Cacho. Narra cmo Soledad, justo cuando se encuentra en la plenitud de la vida, joven, casada con un importante hotelero de Cancn y disfrutando de sus dos hijos, se entera de que es portadora del VIH. Tres das despus de recibir la noticia decida escribir para expresar lo que siente y tratar de explicarse lo que le ocurre. Describe el tormento de emociones encontradas y deterioro fsico por el que pasa y que puede llevarla al a muerte. Pero la novela no es solo la historia de Soledad, sino la de muchas mujeres cuyos esposos las contagian de VIH. Es la historia de un sinfn de familias que se desintegran, de hijos sin padres o de nias y nios que nace con los das contados. Es la historia de un dilema social, poltico religiosos que parecen no lograr consenso mientras l problema crece y amenaza con salirse de control. Es el rostro humanos de aquello que las estadsticas jams revelan. Una historia para morder el corazn.
