The Book of Julieta

Original title: El libro de Julieta
Author: Cristina Sánchez-Andrade

Saturday at 6.30 in the morning. Julieta has been awake since 5.50 and has used the time to roam about the house. The first thing she did was to take of her pyjamas and, completely naked, go looking for her gloves in the box – the gloves being a very important part of her life. From the bed, I can hear her little steps in the hallway moving towards the kitchen and I feel my stomach turning. Just the thought of the state that she has left the rooms she has passed in almost paralyses me physically as well as mentally. Why did I get this girl and not Elena or Christina, the princesses of Spain, or Catherine Z. Jones?
