Description


De la autora de Yo no soy tu perfecta hija mexicana, bestseller del New York Times, nos llega una autobiografía en ensayos sumamente original, tan conmovedora como hilarante.

Al crecer como hija de inmigrantes mexicanos en Chicago en los años noventa, Érika Sánchez se describe a sí misma como una paria inadaptada y una decepción: una revoltosa melancólica que decía demasiadas groserías y se pintaba las uñas de negro, pero a la vez amaba la comedia, en muchas ocasiones riéndose tan fuerte con sus amigos que la obligaba a salir del salón. Veinticinco años después es una novelista, poeta y ensayista galardonada, con una risa todavía irreprimible, un ingenio mordaz y poderes singulares para apreciar el mundo a su alrededor.
 
En estos ensayos, Sánchez escribe de todo, desde sexo y feminismo blanco, hasta depresiones debilitantes, revelando una vida interna abundante de ideas, autoconciencia y percepción. Atrevido, profundo, incorregible y brutalmente honesto, Llorando en el baño nos muestra a Sánchez en su apogeo: un libro que te hará sentir esa euforia que queda después de compartir confesiones durante horas 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.
