This is the story of Aurora Ortiz, who lives in Madrid, and who, at the age of only 30, has been widowed and needs to find a job. Although she is in no position to choose, she would ideally like to work as a caretaker in a quiet block of flats where she could just watch life pass by. Aurora's aspirations are simple and few, and with the help of her neighbor and friend Fany, she composes what she considers a suitable curriculum vitae and proceeds to tramp the streets of the city in search of work. With her vitality and freshness, her innocence, her unconventional intelligence, and her relative lack of commercial ambition, Aurora Ortiz is a new type of heroine, one whose ethos and view of the world run contrary to most contemporary trends. The means by which she comes to terms with the burden and pressures of modern life will strike chords with many of her own European generation.

From the Inside Flap:

A new voice in Spanish literature: contemporary, fresh, humorous and light, yet irresistible in its charm. Your emotional attachment to the heroine grows with every page you read; she could be a character from a Pedro Almodovar film.

About the Author:

ALMUDENA SOLANA was born in Galicia in 1963. She works as a press and television journalist in Madrid and writes and paints in her spare time. This is her first novel; a new novel is expected shortly.
