Item description for Donde las Mujeres (Compactos Anagrama) by Alvaro Pombo...

En esta magnifica novela, galardonada con el Premio Nacional de Narrativa, Alvaro Pombo describe el esplendor y la decadencia de lo que parecia un aunidad familiar que se imagina perfecta. la narradora, la hija mayor de la familia, habia pensado que todos en ella eran seres superiores que brillaban con luz propia en medio del paisaje romantico de la peninsula, una isla casi, en la que vivian, aislados y orgullosamente desdenosos de la chata realidad de su epoca. Pero una serie de sucesos y el desvelamiento de un secreto familiar que la afecta decisivamente, descubre a la narradora el verdadero rostro de los mitificados habitantes de aquel reducto en el que los padres, los maridos, los hombres, dan lo mismo. Son intercambiables. Una revelacion que cambiara irremisiblemente el sentido de su vida.

Reviews - What do customers think about Donde las Mujeres (Compactos Anagrama)?

not always perfect communications  May 1, 2004
This book is about a girl within a group of people who seem to be sure that she can always understand their codes and communications - and whatever happens among them. But the thing is that she is not always aware of whatever relationships and situations might be taking place among them. Since nobody seems quite willing to communicate with her "normally", misunderstandings ensue. Despite her willingness not to be disruptive, the lack of clarity and the forcefulness with which some address her in search of seemingly definite, realistic responses about unreal notions and situations, results in unnecesary disappointments. To a certain extent, a feeling of isolation comes from the realisation that she has been left somehow hanging on the margin of a series of codes and gestures that she can not reproduce by herself or respond to without this becoming a probable source of further conflict. She is aware that her own words and gestures are always somehow non-voluntary, and nevertheless other people seem to pay SUCH close attention to them, as if these were truly and deeply meaningful in themselves when for the most of the time she is simply both unaware and unattentive... In the end she has to make others realise that she can only afford to be either somehow more fully included and clearly addressed or else excluded and that, otherwise others should not be taking her into account at all; overcoming the difficulties and obstacles that they have put between her and them is becoming just too costly in terms of time and energies.
