really liked it

Five women gather on an Atlantic beach in Uruguay at the beginning ofCantoras, by Carolina de Robertis, to fully relax for the first time in their lives in the summer of 1977. Flaca, La Venus, Romina, Malena, and Paz are celebrating a two fold escape. The first thing they are escaping is El Proceso—a dictatorship that held the country in an iron grip from 1973 to 1985. They don’t all know that they’ve made their second escape until they start to open up and talk to each other. By the end of the first day, all of the women admit to being cantoras (lesbians, so-called because they make each other “sing”). By the end of their vacation, the women make a plan to buy a little house in Cabo Polonio to share. Their sudden status as a found family and as shared home owners bind the women together for the next thirty years...
