SHOCKWAVE

Published 1999

Leonor’s obsession with an emotionally unavailable man, his child’s accidental drowning, her nearly blind mutt named Beckford, an eccentric Englishman and a stranger who comes to her rescue converge together to create a fascinating portrait of this solitary woman trapped in a hopelessly destructive relationship.

“Apparently romantic fiction, but deliberately subverted, so that the guilty pleasure of reading matches the depth of the literary journey.” Jorge Listopad, JL Jornal de Letras Artes e Ideias 22.09.99
