A memory of burning

Socorro Venegas

SHORT STORIES. PÁGINAS DE ESPUMA, 2019. 112 PAGES

Picture a girl forced to look for a father who is, no bones about it: a drunk. Picture a mother whose pregnancy has devolved into self-absorption and emptiness after the birth. Finally, picture a woman lost in her memories of a love that will never return. Socorro Venegas' voice is moving, powerful, precise and gorgeous. Her book is a gripping but harrowing read about the lost childhood of sick, blind children; lonely children who are no longer children. About the ordeal of maternity denied from the beginning, a maternity that doesn't exist. About a journey through the remote memory of what was once a heartfelt desire. A chilling book about the music of loneliness, the laughter of a turbulent childhood and the flight of a mother who leaves behind a crib as she escapes into the night.
