The Impossible Map

Novel 11 years + | Ilustrated by: Poly Bernatene | Alfaguara, 2011 | 128 pages

El mapa imposible is a story crisscrossed by the dream of childhood and the haze of growing up. It´s a map of those no-places where the really important things happen: love, happiness, fear. Each person is somehow a changing, poetic, and impossible map.

Lila, Diego, and Julian devote themselves to examining the realms of childhood: naps, fevers, adolescence, lies, hide and seek games, chance.
Maps with a little red cross to mark the treasure we all keep hidden to be found only by those who know how to seek.

A novel designed by the coming and going of time and memories. A text that is proof of Liliana Bodoc´s literary sensibility and quality.
