More About Marcela Serrano

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Marcela Serrano is the daughter of writers and an award-winning Chilean novelist. Her debut novel We Loved So Much won the Literary Prize in Santiago. Her subsequent novels, among them The Hotel of the Sad Women and Our Lady of Loneliness, met with much success, landing her the Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz Prize and a runner-up nod in the prestigious Premio Planeta competition. She is widely considered one of the best Latin American writers working today. Ten Women is her first novel to be published in English. Originally from Inverness, Scotland, Beth Fowler earned her degree in Hispanic Studies from the University of Glasgow, including a year teaching English in Santiago, Chile. She began working as a freelance translator in 2009, and after winning the Harvill Secker Young Translators? Prize in 2010 she began to move her focus from commercial to literary translation. Her first novel translation Open Door by Argentine writer Iosi Havillo was published in 2011. She lives near Glasgow with her husband and son.

Marcela Serrano was born in 1951.

A writing exercise/un ejercicio narrativo  Jan 26, 2005
Esta colección de cuentos se aleja de la habilidad narrativa característica de Serrano en sus novelas. A pesar de la actualidad y relevancia de los temas abordados, el lenguaje y la estructura de las historias carece del mérito y la intriga que enriquecen la obra restante de esta autora chilena.
Este libro parece un ejercicio literario comparado con sus otras novelas. Si es verdad que algunos autores desarrollan una habilidad para ciertos géneros literarios, entonces Serrano debe dedicarse a la novela y abandonar el cuento. Para los seguidores de esta escritora, les recomiendo que inviertan su dinero en cualquiera de sus novelas y que se salten este libro que resulta bastante decepcionante para quien está acostumbrado a la intriga y la calidad del lenguaje con que Serrano se ha ganado un puesto entre las mejores escritoras latinoamericanas.

If you are a Serrano fan, bypass these short stories. They lack the literary mastery and the rich language that characterizes her other novels. Although the topics on these stories are very contemporary, they failed to provoked any interest on the readers. One wonders if this was only a literary exercise for Serrano. By all means, she should refrain from writing short stories and stick to the novel. This genre has won her a very well deserved place among the best women writers in Latinamerica.
desilusion  Aug 24, 2002
la verdad uno espera mas de Marcela Serrano despues de haber leido sus libros anteriores. Estos cuentos no tienen nada que ver con sus anteriores novelas, que tanto disfrute. Para colmo, uno se siente estafado, solo 2 cuentos escritos en un tamano de fuente que se puede leer a 4 metros de distancia! son 94 paginas, pero que en realidad con un tamano de letra normal serian no mas de 20! y hay que pagar 13 dolares!
Como asidua lectora de Marcela Serrano me senti realmente defraudada, sugerencia: quedense con la memoria de obras maestras como "Para que no me olvides" o esperen a que Marcela vuelva a sus habituales novelas.
