Overview

Yoro is the unprecedented testimony of a woman that is not ready to accept a tragic destiny and harsh criticism at what makes life difficult to bear: the war and violence, but also the scientific and religious dogmas that do not allow us to be ourselves. Translated into six languages, it is the story of a woman that fights against the world and wins, but must pay a heavy price.Yoro es el testimonio inaudito de una mujer que no está dispuesta a aceptar un destino trágico y una crítica durísima a todas las cosas que hacen la vida difícilmente soportable: las guerras y todas las formas de violencia del hombre contra el hombre, pero también los dogmas científicos y religiosos que no nos permiten ser nosotros mismos. Traducida a seis idiomas, esta es una «desgarradora y poderosa novela», según el jurado que le concedió el Premio Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz 2016. La historia de una mujer que lucha contra el mundo, y que logra vencer, pero pagando un precio muy alto. H, la narradora y protagonista, confiesa en la primera página del libro que ha cometido un crimen. Y en tono desafiante pide al lector que se atreva a leer su historia.
