Violeta Among the Stars (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Desperate and drunk, Violeta causes a car accident that will prove fatal - to her. But before she dies, Violeta is held in the land of the living for an instant that lasts an eternity, like a drop of water that refuses to fall from a glass.

Suspended in this eternity, Violeta examines her life and what it consists of: her job, selling cosmetics to housewives, her parents, her daughter, and the thousand daily grievances that add up to a frustrated, thwarted life.

She begins to sink into her past. The Carnation Revolution of April 25, 1974, the defining historical moment of her life. Love, passion, sex - the dreams of adolescence sacrificed to failed relationships

My Feelings reads like an epic poem, weaving Violeta's memories, thoughts, feelings to narrate a story that consists of dozens of scenes, voices, flashes and memories. Violeta reflecting on her death, her life, her reality and her dreams.
