Lydia Cacho in conversation with Mábel Lara

Letters of love and rebellion

Cartagena 2023, 

An intimate, brave and moving book about a journalist who becomes a symbol of the fight for human rights. The author Lydia Cacho (Mexico) submerges herself in 46 years’ worth of diaries, photographs, letters and other mementos that she kept, as if she knew she would become a pioneering feminist journalist. In Cartas de amor y rebeldía, Cacho traces a life committed to existential search, romance, passion, poetry and the indignation of living in an unjust world. This is her most intimate and revelatory book. In conversation with Mábel Lara.
