In the award-winning novel "Patricia sigue aqui" Lesly's partner, Patricia, dies in an accident just before they were going to try having a child. This is the story of Lesly's double struggle. Double, because she must assume two losses: that of her partner and of her impending motherhood. Both struggles will be marked by the endless digital trail that Patricia left behind in the form of emails, articles, and blog entries. The constant presence of Patricia on the internet will turn her death into an intermittent succession of brief deaths and resurrections that Lesly must face daily. It is a story of love, loss, and overcoming that explores motherhood, discrimination, the economic crisis, and the new type of mourning that emerged at the turn of the century.
