LA AUTORA REVELACIÓN DE LA LITERATURA LATINOAMERICANA,
finalista del Man Booker Prize y uno de los debuts más importantes del año según El País, «sacude con este brillante ensayo» (Lina Meruane), «crudo espejo de nuestra sociedad de ayer y de hoy» (Carla Guelfenbein).

«Un libro importante y hermosamente escrito [...]: ensayo y relato policial, diario y discusión feminista.»- Giuseppe Caputo

Este provocador e inquietante libro es el resultado de años de investigación sobre los crímenes cometidos por cuatro mujeres chilenas (Corina Rojas, Rosa Faúndez, María Carolina Geel y María Teresa Alfaro), y sobre cómo la sociedad, los medios de comunicación y el poder reaccionaron frente a quienes transgredieron violentamente el espacio doméstico y pasivo que se les había asignado.

Tras quedar finalista del Man Booker International con La resta, su primera novela, con Las homicidas, una obra vibrante y profunda, Alia Trabucco Zerán cuestiona radicalmente aquello que hemos asumido como normal y suma su nombre al nuevo panorama de la literatura latinoamericana.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

THIS YEAR’S NEW AUTHOR REVELATION IN LATIN AMERICAN LITERATURE, finalist of the Man Booker Prize, and one of the most important debuts of the year according to the newspaper El País.
 
“A bare and raw reflection of our society from yesterday and today.” —Carla Guelfenbein
 
“An important and beautifully written book: [...] a police thriller, a diary and feminist discussion.” —Giuseppe Caputo
 
This provocative and disturbing book comes about after years of research on the crimes committed by four Chilean women (Corina Rojas, Rosa Faúndez, María Carolina Geel, and María Teresa Alfaro), and on how society, the media, and those in power reacted to those who violently transgressed the domestic and passive rolls that had been assigned to them.
 
After being a finalist in the Man Booker International award with La resta / The Remainder, her first novel, with Las homicidas / The Murderers, a vibrant and profound work, Alia Trabucco Zerán radically questions what we have presumed as “normal” and adds her name to the new panorama of Latin American literature.
