Wedding Dress

Socorro Venegas

NOVEL.TUSQUETS, 2014. 144 PAGES

Just when she feels that she's getting over being widowed and putting the pain of the loss behind her with a new husband and child, a woman is confronted with loose ends from her past in the form of a strange offer: someone wants to purchase the niche containing the ashes of her first husband Aldo. Suddenly signs and premonitions come flooding back to her: indications that her marriage wouldn't last long. She even chose black as the colour for her wedding dress. ‘Maybe even when I was a girl chasing butterflies I was a widow in larval form.' Little by little, Laura will learn new things about Aldo. She will write to the Icelandic collector with whom he exchanged liquor bottles who will turn out to have information that helps her to confront things about which she had always been in denial.
