It’s not me, by Karmele Jaio

Karmele Jaio, the author of The Father’s House, presents fourteen women’s stories in her new book. They all belong to the same generation, are between forty and fifty years old, and are going through a critical moment in their lives. We will discover them in that strangeness in the face of a body that changes, the anxiety in the face of obvious aging, the nostalgia for the idealized past and youth, the routine of marital relationships, the urgency to take advantage of the time they have left, the feeling of not finding your place… Those small emotional fractures of great importance in the daily life of any woman.

Jaio is one of our best contemporary novelists and one who best reflects the daily complexity of women’s lives.
