REVIEW:


Patricia de Souza's Ursula's last body is the re-edition of a novel that has been shocking readers for years. It is one of those texts that should be republished to the exhaustion, doing otherwise should be banned. Now, re-edited in digital format and translated into English by Cristina López Lumbreras this novel will move along different electronic devices demonstrating it is a self-asserted text able to survive to its own time on its own merits. This is just another step on its journey through time. Those who doesn't know the novel yet will find pure introspection by means of body and memory conceived as basis and starting points for writing about life, about reality. You will find within its pages what pain, anger, sensuality, sadness and especially the struggle of being alive is.

FRAGMENT:

If I could explain it somehow, I would say our short lives were devoted to carnal pleasures in contact with nature, enhanced by favourable weather conditions and our own poverty. This specific fact, being poor, made us sensitive —it wasn't cold so we didn't need many clothes, our skins were always in contact with the sun and the wind— but it didn't deny the existence of some other kind of connections with our body: masturbation, for instance. With the paralysis, however, happened the unexpected: I met displeasure, stiffness and coldness of fear, as well as everything I've already mentioned: anger, felony, selfishness. Those are the first things I had to say, I had to start by talking about what this new connection with my body had revealed to me...

I have loved, I have hated thanks to a body that taught me how to be myself. Nobody but me, alone.
