Blood Red

By Gabriela Ponce & Sarah Booker
Blood Red by Gabriela Ponce & Sarah Booker digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

“The strength of excess and overconsumption. The accelerated, irregular heartbeat of prose that attacks from all angles and doesn’t let the reader breathe, basking in its own exquisiteness.”
José Andrés Bayas, Radio Cocoa


“The narrator and protagonist of Blood Red… is wild. She bleeds, she runs, she separates herself. She bites, she gets drunk, she rollerskates, she sleeps around, she gets pregnant… in sum, she lives. Following her through caves and bodies is an exercise in risk.” 
Xavi Ayén, La Vanguardia


Blood Red could be characterized by its multiplicity and a profoundly provocative spirit were it not futile to put a label on it. Those who make it to the end (which is not difficult, as it is a dizzying, captivating read) will find that everything can be doubted, especially in relationships. This impulse puts the novel in the trend of bold, fascinating contemporary narratives by Latin American women writers.” 
Gabriela Toro, La periódica


“Before all else it is an exploration of femininity, of the female body as a metaphor of living and savage nature, of menstruation, of insanity, of desire, of sex—of this hole that is the uterus, amputating maternities.”
Ariana Basciani, The Objective
