Fuensanta Zertuche's memoirs are an extended leap backwards that, at times, makes us go a little further forward, anticipating what he will do. So widespread is her memory that she does not begin the story with her childhood, but with the two origins of her life: her mother and her father. She shares with us with great affection the nostalgia she feels for La güera Terán, her mother, and with a hint of a child she recreates her difficult relationship with her father, Francisco M. Zertuche. Fuensanta is lively, insightful, direct and strong, we realize this when reading her story; She also has the warmth of a genuine love for theater, for art, for enjoying without guilt what the body is capable of doing. With a firm will, since she was young she discovers what she is passionate about, she discovers that coquetry that makes her own herself, owner of the body that allows her to represent characters, be on stage If there is something that is clear in these memoirs, it is that more than an autobiography, it is a love letter, love for her mother and love for herself through that passion that made her complete: the theater.
