Una separacion / A Separation

Katie Kitamura

Una novela psicologica imponente en la que Katie Kitamura se acerca al thriller y al suspense para ahondar en la infidelidad, el impulso de conservar y la necesidad de dejar ir tras una separacion. Electrizante. […] La lei de una sentada, aguantando la respiracion. .-The Guardian Una mujer viaja a Grecia tras los pasos de su marido desaparecido. La pareja habia decidido separarse, y ella deambula ahora por una region remota al sur del Peloponeso sin estar segura de querer encontrarle. Esta inquietante novela de suspense psicologico nos situa en un paisaje salvaje y esteril arrasado por una oleada de incendios, una tierra quemada por donde la protagonista rastreara los fracasos de su relacion para descubrir que apenas conoce al hombre que una vez amo. En esta especie de limbo emocional, Kitamura despliega con exquisita precision el descenso de una mujer a los infiernos. Feroz e hipnotica, la historia combina el misterio con la introspeccion para diseccionar las emociones que emanan de una separacion. La pena, el odio y el deseo se mezclan en una protagonista que debera asimilar las revelaciones sobre lo que un dia fue su vida conyugal. Por medio de una prosa intensa y perturbadora se mezclan el ambiente hitchcockiano y la tension de los thrillers de Patricia Highsmith.Kitamura firma una obra maestra sobre la infidelidad, el impulso de conservar y la necesidad de dejar ir; una novela fria y de combustion lenta que se lee con avidez y resuena durante largo tiempo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK Named a best book of the year by the New York Times, NPR, Huffington Post, The A.V. Club, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Guardian, Refinery29, Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar, NYLON, BookRiot. Kitamura’s prose gallops, combining Elena Ferrante-style intricacies with the tensions of a top-notch whodunit. -Elle This is her story. About the end of her marriage. About what happened when Christopher went missing and she went to find him. These are her secrets, this is what happened… A young woman has agreed with her faithless husband: it’s time for them to separate. For the moment it’s a private matter, a secret between the two of them. As she begins her new life, she gets word that Christopher has gone missing in a remote region in the rugged south of Greece; she reluctantly agrees to go look for him, still keeping their split to herself. In her heart, she’s not even sure if she wants to find him. As her search comes to a shocking breaking point, she discovers she understands less than she thought she did about her relationship and the man she used to love. A searing, suspenseful story of intimacy and infidelity, A Separation lays bare what divides us from the inner lives of others. With exquisitely cool precision, Katie Kitamura propels us into the experience of a woman on edge, with a fiercely mesmerizing story to tell.
