I do't know why, but the translation is just somewhat funny. "hacer el puente" sounds like it is some sort of yoga-instruction

Yeah I get you but that’s exactly what bent backwards means, the position itself

Yeah I'm aware. I just think it's a title that's hard to translate without getting goofy

For sure.

I’m a translator myself and I don’t know how would I do it tbh, if I had too much choice on that, bc we often don’t

I definitely need to add this to my collection. Does anyone have any links for other places selling this Spanish version? Maybe easier to order in the US? I'm coming up blank on the google.

You could pre-order on Amazon US not so long ago! Maybe if you wait for the official release date (end of March) it will eventually be available again :candy:

My order arrived today and I finished my first reading.

 

This book is so beautiful and thoughtful. You can really feel that she put her heart into it. My only complain is that I wish it was longer. I kept reading the same page over and over again to create the illusion that it had more poems. I'm looking forward to read it tomorrow with a new perspective

I can only pick this up once in a while. It makes me profoundly emotional. I see why some people think this is the best thing she has ever created.
