Synopsis: Elena Poniatowska (Born May 19, 1932) is one of Mexico's best known journalists and authors, specializing in works on social and political issues focused on those considered to be disenfranchised especially women and the poor. She was born in Paris to upper class parents, including her mother whose family fled Mexico during the Mexican Revolution . She left France for Mexico when she was ten to escape the Second World War. When she was eighteen and without a university education, she began writing for the newspaper Excélsior, doing interviews and society columns. Despite the lack of opportunity for women from the 1950s to the 1970s, she evolved to writing about social and political issues in newspapers, books in both fiction and nonfiction form. Her best known work is La noche de Tlatelolco (Massacre in Mexico) about the repression of the 1968 student protests in Mexico City. RESEÑA: Mariana, la narradora de esta novela, es una duquesa cuyos primeros años transcurren en Francia entre valets, mayordomos y vajillas con monograma. Esa existencia encantada toca a su brusco fin con la segunda guerra mundial: el duque, su padre, se va al frente, y la narradora, junto con su hermana y su madre, escapa a México, país del que hasta ahora nada sabía y que se convertirá, en todos sentidos, en su patria. Poco a poco, Mariana va dando los muchísimos pasos que la llevarán a entender lo que son su vieja clase y su nuevo país. En ese proceso interviene el segundo personaje fascinante de esta novela, el padre Teufel, verdadera mezcla de ángel y demonio...
