She finds work in the zoo and moves into the human zoo of a squatted tower block at the invitation of one of its residents, to whom she acts as nurse, giving morphine injections.

"An ambiguous tale that verges on dark comedy. . . . With skill and subtlety, the novel hints that a whole society might labor under an illusion of liberty."--"The Economist"

Iosi Havilio bursts onto the Argentine literary scene after "Open Door" was highly praised by some of the country's most influential critics and writer, including Beatriz Sarlo and Rodolfo Fogwill.

?Listening to stories gives you many lives, telling them dims loneliness." ?Marcela Serrano

Nine Chilean women from vastly different backgrounds have been brought together by their beloved therapist, Natasha, to talk about their lives and help each other heal. From a teenage computer whiz confronting her sexual identity, to a middle-aged recluse who prefers the company of her dog over that of most humans, the women don't have much in common on the surface. And yet as they tell their stories, unlikely common threads are discovered, bonds are formed, and lives are transformed. The women represent the many cultural, racial, and social groups that modern Chile is composed of?from housekeeper to celebrity television personality?and together their stories form a pastiche that is at times achingly sad, and at other times funny and inspiring. This is an intricately woven, beautifully rendered tale of the universal bonds between women from one of Latin America's most celebrated novelists.
