Guadalupe Nettel


The Book of Anger

Guadalupe Nettel is a Mexican writer, author of award-winning novels and collections of short stories translated into more than twenty languages. In 2008 she received a PhD in Literature from the EHESS in Paris. Her work has been adapted into theater and film. At the Institute, Nettel will be working on a novel, The Book of Anger. In her family tree, Alicia has several famously angry ancestors. So much so that this trait has become one of the distinguishing features of the family. What exactly is anger? Where does this emotion come from that can lead us to hurt those we love most or to destroy, in a short period of time, what has cost us so much effort to build? These are some of the questions that Alicia asks to herself in her internal monologue.
