About this tem

Tusquets Editorial

  • "La Pez" - An astonishing novel that transports readers to the banks of the Paraná River, where a creature, part-fish, part-indigenous, is discovered and captured by a group of Spanish crown navigators during the era of the conquest of America.
  • This remarkable discovery reaches the ears of Isabel, the heir to the throne of Castile, who becomes obsessed with the creature and orders its transport to Europe.
  • Contrary to the myth of the white, virgin, and Europeanized mermaid, "La Pez" paints the portrait of an amphibious woman whose untamed sensuality challenges the plans of her captors. With a narrative infused with poetry, scientific discourse, and cinematic montage, Gabriela Larralde has crafted a disturbing novel where the fantastic and the wild come to life in characters and landscapes that refuse to submit to colonial violence.

Set on the shores of the Paraná River, "La Pez" is a mesmerizing novel that unveils a unique narrative. In this tale, a creature, part-fish and part-indigenous, is stumbled upon and apprehended by a group of Spanish crown navigators during the time of America's conquest.

The astounding discovery finds its way to Isabel, the heir to the Castilian throne, who becomes captivated by the creature and issues orders for its transportation to Europe. In stark contrast to the prevailing myth of the virginal, white, and Europeanized mermaid, "La Pez" introduces us to an amphibious woman whose unbridled sensuality disrupts the designs of her captors.

Gabriela Larralde masterfully weaves poetry, scientific discourse, and cinematic storytelling into this captivating narrative. "La Pez" is a thought-provoking and unsettling novel where the realms of the fantastical and the untamed collide within characters and landscapes that resist the forces of colonial violence.
