Poniatowska never attempts to puzzle out any pieces, favouring short phases of lyrical attentiveness to their peculiar climate. Cuando uno se lanza a lo desconocido se salva. Those hunting for explanations are in the wrong dream. Diana Luna rated it did not like it May 13,

Me desespere y sencillamente no pude terminarlo. Poniatowska had a great affinity with women and liked to write about them. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I have abandoned this book.
