Il corpo in cui sono nata by Guadalupe Nettel (La Nuova Frontiera, 2022) is a moving novel of initiation into life and literature, a journey backwards towards self-acceptance, a Bildungsroman set between Latin America and Europe.
Written as a soliloquy on a psychoanalyst's couch, Guadalupe Nettel shares her most intimate memories and interpretations of life, telling us a story full of humour but also of realism, in which the world of childhood is revealed in a more disturbing light than we can imagine.
Guadalupe Nettel was born in Mexico City in 1973. Considered one of the most important Latin American writers of our time, she is the author of two successful collections of short stories, El matrimonio de los peces rojos (2018) and Pétalos y otras historias incómodas (2019), and the bestselling novel La hija única (2020), all published in Italy by La Nuova Frontiera.
Her career has been marked by important awards such as the Antonin Artaud Prize (2008), Anna Seghers (2009), Ribera del Duero Short Fiction (2013) and the Herralde de Novela (2014).
