Lilly es un cuento brutal sobre el abuso infantil por parte de la propia infancia. En la obscuridad toca el tema antes indicado de la capacidad de la enfermedad para despertar nuestra lucidez.

El rostro borrado es una exploración sobre la memoria y la ternura, con un estilo dulce y acariciador. 195 estremece al acercarse al tema del maltrato femenino y la maternidad con una dureza que a la vez transmite sentimiento de un modo que es muy difícil definir, pero que es facilísimo sentir
