El arrecife de las sirenas

The Sirens' Reef | La Bella Varsovia, 2017

After illness comes life. Inevitably, a welcome follows a goodbye.

This book by Luna Miguel, as a meditation on illness and loss, is in conversation with her previous works, but it also opens up new and luminous lines in her own writing.

Desire and sex, motherhood and reconceived feminine roles are at the foreground of El arrecife de las sirenas, one of the most brilliant reflections in Spanish-language poetry on the role of daughters... and the role of mothers.
