Every day belongs to us

Catalina Aguilar Mastretta

NOVEL. OCÉANO, 2016. 252 PAGES

They were María and Emiliano. That was what everyone called them, everywhere they went... until one day they weren't any more. Since then they've discovered that rebuilding a new life as a single person is just as hard as building one together. The right path seems obvious: find new spaces, new groups, reinvent the Everyday. But how can you avoid seeing traces of your ex around every corner? Especially if he's a filmmaker and you're a film critic. From the ruins of a relationship that seemed indestructible and paths that keep on crossing in the most unexpected places, Maria must find a new home and create new versions of herself in both her waking and sleeping life. And she must also decide on the best way to get on in a world in which she still has her whole life ahead of her.

"Irony on steroids.

Syrupy resentment.

A story told with the cutting edge of a scalpel."

Xavier Velasco

 

"The Mexican writer Catalina Aguilar Mastretta makes a powerful entrance onto the literary scene, ready to thrill readers with this story of love and heartbreak [...] You can't read these pages without making an emotional connection."
Jorge Pato Garcia, El Imparcial
