Description:
This translation originally published: 2012.
When Óscar Amalfitano begins an impulsive affair with one of his students at the University of Barcelona, he has no idea where it will lead. More than his turbulent revolutionary past, or the death of his beautiful wife, the scandalous exposure of this relationship will change him forever. Forced to flee with his 17-year-old daughter, Amalfitano finds himself in Santa Teresa, a sprawling town on the US-Mexico border. Haunted by dark tales of murdered women, this mythical place is populated by mysterious characters.
Translated from the Spanish.
