In her novel, María Cecilia Barbetta narrates the ghostly atmosphere the night before political upheaval. They came from all over the world and made a life for themselves in Buenos Aires. In the Ballester district, everyone fights for himself for a new beginning, the revolution and a better future whether it be Teresa and her classmates in the Catholic girls’ school, Celio, the hairstylist from “Eternal Beauty” or the mechanics from “Autopia” car repair shop. But political tension tears the country apart while superstition and violence seep into normality. With a subtle flair for the poetry of daily life, María Cecilia Barbetta recounts the love of life in times of upheaval.
