Bravo para Mayra Montero Jul 19, 2003
Si como yo, has leido otros libros de Mayra Montero, definitivamente "Purpura Profundo" va a captar tu atencion. Es una historia bastante realista y quizas hasta controversial para muchas personas. Mayra Montero narra con increible realismo y naturalidad la vida de el personaje principal, al punto de sentir que tu tambien lo conoces. Bravo por ella, que es una mujer que escribe lo que muchos no se atreven.
