Following “Women on the edge”, this new series covers different, more complex and embracing territory topics. New themes are added to the classic themes of female neurosis, partners, children and the body. Here we find Maitena’s reflections on social and contemporary behaviour, trends and consumerism. With a touch of irony, “Curvas Peligrosas” perfectly depicts the signs and vices of these times. Sharp-edged and ruthless, yet with room for tenderness and, even, a faint and resigned melancholy. As if Maitena were drawing these curves in the road so that all of us, including herself, may drive through life with a little more sense of humour.
“Maitena has managed to express the hope and fears of her readers with great doses of wit and understanding.” Larry Rohter, “The New York Times”
”Maitena observes and suggests with perfidious candour. She takes everything in and presents it with a self-irony that contains a declaration of war: laugh, if you dare to.” Beppe Severgnini, “Corriere della Serra”
“…Perceptive, intelligent, vital… This woman is as profound as the universe straightforward as a road of knowledge. Through her eyes, we improve without the battle of the sexes.” Joan Barril, “El Periódico”, Barcelona
