By Gabriela Wiener
Translated from the Spanish by Lucy Greaves and Jennifer Adcock
“No other writer in the Spanish-speaking world is as fiercely independent and thoroughly irreverent as Gabriela Wiener. Constantly testing the limits of genre and gender, Wiener’s work … has bravely unveiled truths some may prefer remain concealed about a range of topics, from the daily life of polymorphous desire to the tiring labor of maternity.”
—Cristina Rivera Garza, author of The Iliac Crest
