Author: Rima Brusi Gil de Lamadrid


Series: Crónica otra


Chronicle and Memoir. It is said that happiness is not a good stimulus to write. Pain is, in order to understand it and distance oneself from it. The serenity of Rima Brusi’s controlled and clear style is admirable, as much as the testimony’s intelligence. This book is also an essay of introspection, in which the plot revolves around the most elemental of human affects: the relation between a mother and a daughter, who will become a mother. Fantasmas includes stories of an astounding pattern of abuse in scenarios that are difficult to conceive; of everyday mistreatment in common places that we do not have the courage to think about; of the transgenerational legacy of trauma in a family. (Marta Aponte Alsina)
