Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cosas que ya no existen es una deliciosa cronica personal, el testimonio directo de una vida y de una epoca. Pero tambien una invitacion a un viaje, una fascinante travesia con escalas. Con un admirable dominio de los recursos narrativos y una deslumbrante capacidad de evocacion, Cristina Fernandez Cubas hilvana algunos de sus recuerdos mas intensos hasta conformar un magico laberinto de personajes, sensaciones, momentos historicos, paisajes, suenos, desenganos y fascinaciones en esta peculiar historia de historias en la que los autenticos protagonistas son escenas del pasado con una caracteristica comun: hoy parecen imposibles, pertenecen a una epoca extinguida, a un mundo que ya acabo. El salon biblioteca de la casa de su infancia, la afrenta moral de una monja en el colegio, los cuentos que a ella y a sus hermanas les contaba una singularisima ninera, los viajes en trasatlantico en los anos setenta rumbo a Sudamerica, las estancias en Buenos Aires y Egipto, o la muerte de su hermano mayor son, entre otras muchas historias, esas cosas que ya no existen y que Cristina Fernandez Cubas nos devuelve ahora, con toda sinceridad y maestria, en estas paginas inolvidables.

Synopsis:

With an admirable mastery of narrative resources and a dazzling ability to recall, the author weaves her strongest memories to form a magical maze of characters, feelings, historical moments, disappointments and fascination in this particular story in which the real stars are scenes from the past with a common characteristic: they belong to an extinct era, to a world that is already over.
