"This is the English translation of the extraordinarily popular Mexican novel that remained on Mexico's Top Ten Best Sellers list long after its initial publication. The protagonist of the novel, Valeria, is a member of a well-to-do Jewish family in Mexico City. She is married and has two sons. Intelligent and sensitive, she realizes that the traditional conventions of her culture and subculture have made her unable to be a whole person, acting as a relatively free agent in the world. Then she falls passionately in love with a woman, and, against tremendous family pressure, finds the courage to leave her conventional life to become the writer she has wanted to be. All the elements of a true romance written with fine literary sensibility."--Jacket.
