Original Title: Coníferes

Joel lives in the Waldens, an idyllic community which, tucked away in a natural setting, rejects mobile phones and the latest technologies. Fascinated by a newcomer called Alina, and wanting to become acquainted with her, he starts sending a series of letters to himself but to her address. The plan works until one day he receives a letter that he has not written, with contents suggesting that the sender knows him better than he knows himself. As Joel and Alina’s relationship develops, mistakes proliferate, as do the threats of a saboteur who is obsessed with coming between them. Slowly and without envisaging it, Joel becomes immersed in a world of mirrors where a person’s reflection is more real than it seems.

Praises

«A notable power of persuasion».
Fulgencio Argüelles, Culturas

«An atomised story in small but very powerful chapters».
La Razón

«Carnicero is able to sustain the emotional tension throughout her novel […], a claustrophobic story that ends up working at both symbolic and narrative levels».
