Quiltras is a collection of incisive, bitter and amusing stories at the same time. A brief powerful book that brings together critical stories of subversive significance that are narrated in first person by women that interact –sometimes with mongrel dogs, also used as a metaphor– in peripheral areas of Santiago in Chile, places where opportunities seem twice difficult. How is love and friendship in this narrative space? Arelis´ answers reflects a world of inequality, abuse and machismo in which Quiltras can be read as a manifesto –that could be written from any dusty neighborhood of the world– of common women that have a good reason to rise their voices.
Quiltras also tackles issues like sexuality among women, care and love for animals, travels to Chilean villages, virtual love, adolescence and education in Chile from author´s critical and sharp point of view.
