Synopsis: - WINNER OF FUNDACIÓN CUATRO GATOS PRIZE 2019 -
Sixteen poems —doors that lead the reader through a magical geography of daily or fantastic scenarios, which foster encounters with familiar characters— "My grandmother was of ashes / corn and water" — or legendary and amazing— such as Arctic the old man, "Whale hunter / and three meter beard" —. Reality and dream carry on a dialogue in verses of excellent workmanship, enhanced with suggestive illustrations. A book to discover that authentic poetry, like the voices of old fairies, is a mystery always waiting to be revealed.
