La fugitiva

Year: 2011
Editorial: Alfaguara
Language: Español, Catalán
Synopsis: The Fugitive

“Amanda’s curse was her genius. She used all of her feminine resources to conceal her angelic condition.”

Three feminine voices narrate the dramatic life of a woman who, in a closed and provincial society, chose the accursed writing profession. Three voices, three ways of conceiving life, friendship and love, but all with a common denominator: to tell us who was the much desired and envied Amanda Solano.

These voices, each with its own range, will take us back to the Costa Rica of the first half of the previous century, where we will meet a character marked by her beauty and genius, and by her defiant sense of liberty, and her greatest weakness: men. In a convulsive period, when women were denied their own life choices, Amanda Solano had no other option but exile, within and outside of her country.

Sergio Ramirez assumes the challenge of putting a voice to three very different feminine characters, and does so with a simple and moving style which will turn us into accomplices of this singular woman’s story, who lived off her legend and died feeling forgotten by all. Even today, her grave is hardly marked by a number.
