Description


De la autora de Yo no soy tu perfecta hija mexicana, bestseller del New York Times, nos llegan estos originalísimos ensayos autobiográficos, profundamente conmovedores y de una comicidad que desarma.
 
Hija de inmigrantes mexicanos y criada en Chicago en la década de los noventa, Erika L. Sánchez se ha descrito a sí misma como paria, inadaptada y un chasco: agitadora melancólica y malhablada que se pintaba las uñas de negro, pero también disfrutaba la comedia y tenía el sueño improbable de ser poeta. Veinticinco años más tarde se ha convertido en una galardonada novelista, poeta y ensayista, pero no ha perdido la risa incontrolable, su áspero ingenio y sus singulares poderes para percibir el mundo a su alrededor.
 
En estos ensayos, que tratan de todo —desde la sexualidad hasta el feminismo blanco, pasando por la depresión debilitante y las búsquedas redentoras de la espiritualidad, el arte y los viajes—, Sánchez revela una vida interior rica en ideas, autoconciencia y percepción: la de una mujer que trazó un camino enteramente de su propia factura. Atrevido, perspicaz, incorregible y brutalmente honesto, Llorando en el baño es Sánchez en su máxima expresión: un libro que te hará sentir ese subidón que resulta de revelaciones íntimas y horas de plática con tu mejor amiga.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From the New York Times bestselling author of I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, an utterly original memoir-in-essays that is asdeeply moving as it is hilarious.

Growing up as the daughter of Mexican immigrants in Chicago in the nineties, Erika Sánchez was a self-described pariah, misfit, and disappointment—a foul-mouthed, melancholic rabble-rouser who painted her nails black but also loved comedy, often laughing so hard with her friends that she had to leave her school classroom. Twenty-five years later, she’s now an award-winning novelist, poet, and essayist, but she’s still got an irrepressible laugh, an acerbic wit, and singular powers of perception about the world around her.

In these essays, Sánchez writes about everything from sex to white feminism to debilitating depression, revealing an interior life rich with ideas, self-awareness, and perception. Raunchy, insightful, unapologetic, and brutally honest, Crying in the Bathroom is Sánchez at her best—a book that will make you feel that post-confessional high that comes from talking for hours with your best friend.
