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. Ultimátum violeta me recuerda a ese angustioso relato de Cortázar en que un personaje descubre la nada al intentar ponerse un púlover de estrecho cuello, aquí la nada, el acabamiento lo induce una garrapata que absorbe al personaje hasta agotarlo--un cuento genial. 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
