Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0935480234, Paperback)

In this groundbreaking novel from Lucía Guerra, perceived roles and expectations of women are called into question. Cristina narrates her life, providing readers with a true female perspective rather than showing events through a phallocentric lens. The protagonist discusses taboo topics—including sensuality, menstruation, pregnancy, and abortion—with stark realism, anger, and rebellion, which is in direct contrast to the poetic euphemisms and illusions used in the masculine world that dominated literature at the time.

En esta novela revolucionaria de Lucía Guerra, se ponen en duda los roles y expectativas de la mujer. Cristina narra su vida, proveyendo al lector de un punto de vista femenino en vez de mostrando los eventos a través de un lente falocéntrico. La protagonista discute temas tabú—incluyendo la sensualidad, la menstruación, el embarazo y el aborto—con un realismo descarnado, con ira y con rebelión, en contraste directo con los eufemismos poéticos y las ilusiones usadas en el mundo masculino que dominó la literatura en ese momento.
