The Weeping Woman

Marcela Serrano

NOVEL. PLANETA, 2008. 167 PAGES.

The main character of this novel will fight against the theft of infants, a crime no one seemed willing to stand up to and which the narrator experienced firsthand, without even a minimum of understanding from her husband or anybody else. In fact, they call her the weeping woman –a legend of the mournful soul of a mother who wanders through the night crying for her children– and even accuse her of killing her own baby, disappeared from the hospital at birth and who everybody seems interested in forgetting as quickly as possible. A condemnation of an ongoing injustice as well as an imaginary testimony of a cruel reality, The weeping woman is a moving and revealing tale, a realistic drama written with lyricism and frankness.
