"Las primas" is set in the 1940s, providing a glimpse into the tortuous world of a dysfunctional lower middle class family in La Plata. Halfway between a delirious autobiography and an intimate ethnography, author Aurora Venturini explores the lives of four women in this world who eternally orbit emptiness. This work is a unique and original novel, with prose that challenges the conventions of literary language.
