Sodium

Jorge Consiglio

NOVEL, ETERNA CADENCIA, 2021, 176 PAGES

Some childhood experiences have repercussions throughout a lifetime, occasionally in imperceptible ways. This seems true of the protagonist of this story and his meeting with Leonardo Del Vecchio, his first swimming teacher, at the age of ten. Water becomes his new habitat, a refuge when his earthly existence feels overly threatening. Later on, his life develops into a series of unremarkable routines adopted as a means of warding off bad luck: a quiet adolescence in Mar del Plata; studying Dentistry in Buenos Aires; a relationship with a childhood sweetheart who reappears years later; and a promising job in Brazil. Jorge Consiglio has written an enchanting novel that shows off his talent for finding flashes of the extraordinary in insignificant details.
