Red Ashes

Socorro Venegas

104 PAGES

‘There's nothing for me any more. Just an inexhaustible procession of cold, metallic nights.' ‘What I need is to feel a little hope.' ‘No-one could possibly envy me.' These lines are an indication of the depth, beauty and honesty of this memoir of grief and the determination to survive written by a woman whose lover has died in her arms.
Structured as a diary and full of poetry and vivid memories, Socorro Venegas reveals the dark processes of grief that run through a body and soul racked by absence, waiting and yearning. But the stars are out and light lingers on. This muted world of silent anguish is masterfully portrayed by the illustrator Gabriel Pacheco.
