** With an introduction by Mariana Enrquez ** 'Cruel and strange and colourful.' Catherine Lacey 'Brimming with life, humour and a vital twist of darkness.' Alexandra Kleeman ' 'A hellishly tender and hilariously twisted Little Women.' Pola Oloixarac 'A novel of depraved genius.' Enrique Vila-Matas Cousins is the jewel in Venturini's oeuvre - mischievous and stylish, vital and mysterious . . . and completely original. It is the story of four women from an impoverished, dysfunctional family in La Plata, Argentina. Neighborhood mythologies, family, female sexuality, vengeance, and social mobility through art are explored and scrutinized in the voice of an unforgettable protagonist, Yuna, who stares wildly at the world in which she is compelled to live; a voice unique in its candidness, sharp edge and utterly breathtaking power.

Övrig information

Aurora Venturini was born in 1921 in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. She was an adviser to the Institute of the Child's Psychology and Re-education where she met and became intimate friends with Eva Pern. In 1948, Jorge Luis Borges personally handed her the Initiation Award (Premio Iniciacin) for her book El solitario. She studied Psychology at the University of Paris, where she self-exiled for 25 years after the Liberating Revolution. In Paris she lived in the company of Violette Leduc and became a friend of Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Albert Camus, Eugne Ionesco and Juliette Grco. She translated and wrote critical essays on poets such as Isidore Ducasse, Conde de Lautramont, Franois Villon and Arthur Rimbaud; for the translations of the latter two authors she received the Iron Cross decoration granted by the French government. In 2007, she received the Pgina/12 New Novel Award for Las primas (Cousins). She died on November 24, 2015, in Buenos Aires at the age of 92.
