Notes

General Note
"Originally published in Spain in 2020, under the title Las Maravillas, by Editorial Anagrama."--Title page verso.
Description
"Through the rich inner lives of two ordinary, unforgettable women, award-winning Spanish poet Elena Medel brings a half-century of the feminist movement to life, revealing the simmering truth that money is ultimately the limiting factor in most women's lives"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
Mar̕a moved to the city in 1969, leaving her daughter with her family but hoping to save enough to take care of her one day. She worked as a housekeeper, a caregiver, a cleaner--somehow always taking care of someone else. Two generations later, during the Women's March in 2018, Alicia was working at the snack shop in the Atocha train station when it overflowed with protesters and strikers. Women, so many women, were flooding the streets with their signs and chants. She couldn't have known Mar̕a was among them; she was on the clock. And later, she'd be looking for someone else, a man to take her away for a few hours, to make her forget. Anyone but her husband, with his pleas to go on bike rides together, to have children, to act like the other thirtysomething couples they knew.
