"What would you ask a pair of whales before they die? What would you ask lovers about to say goodbye?"

It's the 24th of December and the year is almost over. It's not the only thing about to end: Pedro and Ana are going to part ways. They've agreed between themselves but haven't yet told their family or friends. Until today. This Christmas Eve, Pedro will look back over a series of shared moments, the mistakes he's made and the things he got right. It's also his fortieth birthday.

True Places is a novel about the end of a love affair that shrouds us in the rhythms of a farewell, revealing the cracks that can open up in a relationship between lovers, friends and everything they have built together. Gastón García Marinozzi has produced a masterful gift, a story of love won and lost that quietly explores these subtle but heartbreaking tragedies.
