Louise Gluck ponnos diante do noso peor nós, e non pasa nada. Salvo que nos damos conta do que somos capaces de pensar e non dicimos. Pode que a súa sexa unha aproximación científica á súa familia, como unha entomóloga que pode diseccionar a quen, como mínimo, observa, e pode que ame. É crear beleza á vez. Unha maravilla.

Poemario bilingüe que comeza coa historia dun amante despreciable e continúa con historias antigas, sobre o tempo a vida e a morte. A sinxeleza da obra de Glück sempre sorprende
