Your King no Longer Walks this Earth
Original title: Ya no pisa la tierra tu rey
Author: Cristina Sánchez-Andrade
An original story exploring the contrast between convent life and a neighbouring palace, told via the perspective of some very unconventional nuns. Is it possible to hold back all the voices and points of view of a community under a single discourse? What can you do to avoid being sunk in a pool of communal voice that devoids you of your own voice? Cristina Sánchez-Andrade has created a unique novel full of lyricism in which loneliness, human helplessness, freedom and the search of identity play crucial roles and determine the actions and feelings of those who inhabit its pages.
