Publisher's Summary

A partir de un enigma que se plantea con el nacimiento de un niño, Clara Obligado cuenta la historia de varias mujeres que se concocen en un local de baile. Todas ellas esconden algo, y sus vidas se entrecruzan en giros que tienen el ritmo de la salsa.El amor, la pasión, la amistad o el sexo son algunos de los temas centrales. Omara la cubana; el tímido Jotabé; Ulises, el guapísimo africano que da clases en el local; la vacilante Gloria, dividida entre la maternidad y el deseo; Marga, una divorciada que busca un nuevo amor; Jamaica Bronx, adicta a los jóvenes, o Viviana, una argentina que se siente de nunguna parte ... Éstos son algunos de los personajes de esta historia, en la que la intriga cumple un papel importante.Clara Obligada ha construido una novela que, a través del humor - y del dolor - aborda la difícil búsqueda de la identidad femenina al margen de los esterotipos. Y también de quienes descubren, mientras bailan, que el amor, en todas sus variantes, es la salsa de la vida.Please note: This title is in Spanish.

Superior Telenovela

Almost the final sentence of the book is 'life is a telenovela', and that rather sums it up. Well written, quite pacy, and capturing the rootlessness and sudden reverses of fortune of the immigrant, or those who have migrated and lost their roots, but lacking in any depth, though not without suggestions of deeper intentions.

As usual Adriana Sananes does a wonderful job on the reading.
