A man and a woman decide to leave the city for the desert, taking only two bottles of water and a blank journal with them. Blinded by the sun, they spend their fasting days reading each other the chapters they’ve written in white ink, chapters that narrate events as ridiculous as they are moving. The result is this novel made up of stories that ask themselves if the oscillation between delirium and severity is the only way to talk honestly—while hungry and in the desert—about love.

 

Un hombre y una mujer deciden escapar de la ciudad al desierto, llevando solamente dos botellas de agua y un cuaderno con las p ginas en blanco. Cegados por el sol, pasan los d as de ayuno ley ndose el uno al otro los cap tulos que han escrito con tinta blanca, cap tulos que narran eventos tanto rid culos como conmovedores. El resultado es esta novela hecha de relatos que se preguntan si la oscilaci n entre el delirio y la austeridad es la nica manera de hablar fielmente—en el desierto y con hambre—del amor.
