Item description for Flotando En La Palma De La Mano De Mi Madre / Floating In My Mother's Palm by Ursula Hegi & Roser Berdague...

La infancia de Hanna Malter transcurri en el pueblo de Burgdorf, a orillas del Rin, en la Alemania de la posguerra, cuando nadie quera recordar esos aos de horror y muerte y el periodo haba desaparecido incluso de los libros de texto.

De la mano de Trudi Montag, la bibliotecaria del pueblo, una mujer solitaria y deforme que mata el aburrimiento entrometindose en vidas ajenas, Hanna descubre los secretos de sus vecinos, historias que son a veces inconfensables vergenzas y, otras veces, heroicidades de ese pasado que los adultos se empean en borrar. Pero ms all de los misterios de las gentes de Burgdorf, con cada historia, Hanna aprende que dejar la infancia es mucho ms difcil de lo que nunca haba credo y que el mundo de los mayores est repleto de gestos extraos e incomprensibles.

Plagada de referencias autobiogrficas, Flotando en la palma de la mano de mi madre es un hermoso retablo de personajes y ancdotas, sencillo y profundo a un tiempo, evocacin de la infancia aorada de Hanna en la que, con fuerza irremplazable, surge la imagen de su madre, una mujer imprevisible y libre que le ense a Hannah a nadar en el ro durante las noches de tormenta para aplacar los recuerdos ms tristes.
