Fiction • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Narrator Alexandra Grey transports listeners to a working-class neighborhood in 1980-1990s Madrid. The coming-of-age story is told through the first-person perspective of an unnamed trans woman who recounts growing up in a poverty-stricken area of Madrid that is filled with heroin addiction, violence, death. Grey's understated performance of the lyrical writing creates a haunting listening experience as the protagonist grapples with painful realities, including transphobia and domestic violence, while searching for community and sisterhood. The vivid scenes and intimate reflections that are described through memories of particular moments make this novel feel like a memoir. This is a heartrending listening experience.
