“A primeira morte acontece na linguagem, nesse acto de arrancar os sujeitos do presente para os fixar no passado. Transformá-los em acções acabadas. Coisas que começaram e acabaram num tempo extinto. Aquilo que foi e não voltará a ser.”
Karina Sainz Borgo, La hija de la española

“In this country, no one rests in peace. No one.”
Karina Sainz Borgo, It Would Be Night in Caracas

“The funeral parlor had no credit card reader, they didn’t accept bank transfers, and I didn’t have enough cash to cover the quantity requested, which was something like two thousand times my monthly wage. Even if I’d had the cash, they wouldn’t have accepted it. No one wanted cash anymore. Cash was worthless bits of paper.”
Karina Sainz Borgo, It Would Be Night in Caracas
