Description

La mundialmente aclamada autora de "La casa en Mango Street" nos brinda un relato profundamente conmovedor acerca de la pErdida, el duelo y la sanaciOn: una fAbula para adultos lIricamente narrada y vIvidamente ilustrada sobre una mujer que busca un gato extraviado tras la muerte de su madre.
La palabra "huErfana" no parecerIa aplicarse a una mujer de cincuenta y tres aNos de edad. Sin embargo, asI es exactamente cOmo se siente Sandra al encontrarse sin madre, sola "como un guante abandonado en la estaciOn de autobuses." Lo que pudiera salvarla es la bUsqueda de algo mAs que se ha perdido: MarIa, la gatita blanquinegra de su amiga, Rosi, que se largO el dIa en que ellas dos llegaron desde Tacoma. A medida que Sandra y Rosi peinan las calles de San Antonio--preguntando por todas partes y poniendo volantes--"Has visto a MarIa? "hace gala de la habilidad de esta querida autora de contar cuentos llenos de magia, en un relato que nos recuerda cOmo el amor, aun cuando desaparece, no se pierde por siempre.
