YOUR NAME WRITTEN ON WATER, winner of an international contest for erotic literature in Spanish and a bestseller in Spain, is a startling and charged exploration of desire and narcissism that reads like Carole Maso's AUREOLE with a twist of THE STORY OF O. Sofia works in a gallery in Madrid, the young wife of an architect whose love for her has hardened into a passionate and destructive resentment. Her life is transformed when one afternoon, by chance, she spends her lunch hour at a public pool outside the city. There she meets Marina, a woman who is her doppelganger. They are immediately drawn together - so powerfully that Sofia feels it all may be a trick of her fevered mind - and together they forge a love that is tender as well as passionate, with an intimacy that is almost eerie. When Sofia learns that Marina is leaving for a job in Rome, she sees the perfect exit from a marriage that has become tyranny. And so they go, twin fugitives after desire - but pursued as well by the spectre of danger. YOUR NAME WRITTEN ON WATER is a stunningly accomplished and deeply psychological novel with the charge of an erotic thriller.

'In its scenes beats the heart of Miller and Nin, but also, closer to the surface, there are echoes of Sade' EL NAIS 'A taut and agile novel ... through the dual and singular love of Sofia and Marina, the author shows us that love, tenderness (and also its opposite) are the best erotic catalysts' CORDOBA
