Vilar Madruga's prose resonates with compelling force and freshness, born from the fusion of genres: science fiction, eroticism, and a touch of dark gothic style. 'Las Cavidades' introduces us to Aricia and her story, notably the lineage of women in her family: women with wandering heads.
Imagine this: Aricia, recovering from a cesarean section, lies on the operating table, feeling her head separate from her body.
A head detached from the body. A body disconnected by a cavity. This novel is laden with symbolism.
We will delve into Aricia's narrative, a story that oscillates between the present, her relationship with Mauro, her partner, her daily struggles, desires, erotic fantasies, and the growing gap between them (reflecting the expansion of the cavity between Aricia's head and body), and the past: her childhood and her association with a group of women who also share the condition of wandering heads.
Through the cavity that separates body and head, the novel contemplates motherhood, sexuality, and the exploration of our bodies, written with a refreshingly erotic pen.
"If Aricia were not a floating head in space, an experiment of some madman who disconnected the receptors from a body that had functioned until then; if she had been able to perceive something below her neck other than emptiness, those caresses would have moistened her."
"Las Cavidades" by Elaine Vilar Madruga is not just a novel; it's an exploration that invites readers to reflect on the complexities of our existence, blurring the lines between reality and metaphor.
