Product information

Part of the Colección América, the master of Modern Letters, Yael Weiss presents 9 stories based on the concept of immortality that is given to cycads in Japan. The cycle of cycads is to live underground, drinking from the roots of trees, and emerge every 17 years to mate, lay eggs and die. In their stage of living outside they produce their characteristic and thunderous sound, which refers to the author the process of change and transformation that they are forced to undergo by nature. Using this convention as a starting point, the author takes us through various stories that connect with the reader through what characterizes everything: the fragility of life.
