NOVEL. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2017. 320 PAGES

Buenos Aires in 1930. Stein Frank is a jeweller in the family business but his real vocation is for painting. On his wanderings through the city, he meets Aime, a young woman of indigenous descent who catches his eye with her jet black hair and dark eyes. Between long walks and painting sessions, the two forge a profound relationship. But their roots will count against them and they will have to flee to Mendoza to consummate their love. There, Aime will give birth to Lihuén, a beautiful, dusky child with grey eyes. When she grows up, the girl will defy her parents and the rest of the world to embark on her own forbidden love affair.
Ties between parents and their children, obsessive love, deep friendships, bonds forged in spite of adversity and captivating passion enliven this tale overflowing with emotion. Brushstrokes of Jet Black teaches us that prejudice and fatalism are no match for true love.
