Original title: La pinça birmana
Author: Maria Jaén
Pride, love, liberty, pain and rebellion punctuate this novel, the story of two sisters with very different ambitions; of their mother Maria, who is fighting to make her way in the world despite her rural origins; of her jetsetting friend, Cèlia, who leads a life of secrets; and of Remei, a silent woman with a brutal past. The words of family members, voices from radio serials and snippets from women’s magazines blend to illustrate these lives heavy with experience and emotion.
