A nice group accompanied the writer from Ayacucho to this presentation of the literary work, a captivating novel, where Ana reflects talent and ability through his pen in this type of genre. The event was attended by friends and guests who enjoyed a warm moment.
“Photography of an Absence” is a novel that takes place in Sierra del Viento (a fictional city in Argentina that the author also used in her previous book “The Faces of Truth”). The story begins in 1978 and ends in 2013, it goes through the dark times of Argentina, passes through Italy and ends up again in Argentina.

An ocean of stories
“Finding a way to tell each of these universes is perhaps the most heartfelt and correct way to sustain the memory of what should not happen again. From this place, reading “Photography of an Absence” took me to that sacred place. in which each person is unique. Surely there were a thousand cases similar to this one, but none the same. And although the names are not real, the story is. A story composed of many narratives, which desists from the first moment of any form of macabre description, of bestial details, of arguments that seek to take advantage of misfortune to generate empathy, of allowing itself to be tempted by the morbid story, and all of this without ceasing to say nothing,” Ana explained.
Before taking any precautions, we are already in its plot, without notices or warnings. Like in a river, things happen and they don’t stop, without falling into the attempt to seek the reader’s complicity through commiseration. And that is very valuable.
The aforementioned novel was presented at Jubilé Tandil, at Alfa Librería and at the Rauch Book Fair. At the closing of the event, the Tandil-based writer signed each copy of her work.
