Sara Jaramillo Klinkert in conversation with Esteban Duperly

Donde cantan las ballenas

Jericó 2022, 

The author of the outstanding novel Cómo maté a mi padre (2020), Sara Jaramillo Klinkert (Colombia), presents a new work, Donde cantan las ballenas, the story of Candelaria, a twelve-year-old girl who lives with a mother who talks to the stones, a brother who grows magical mushrooms and a father who sculpts whales. When her father disappears, her longing to find him will spark the plot that includes characters who are experts in poisonous plants, fearful of storms and evicted writers. The author will talk about this, her second novel, with Esteban Duperly.
