Girar is the story of Mother and Father. They live a settled and suburban life, but their son is gay, and has migrated continents away from them. They yearn for him to be home.
Girar is also the story of our planet, and the thousands of cultures on it. Because I’ve been to many places, and I’ve lived all over the world, I want my novel to reflect our more globalised state of existence. I want to turn around the world, as I want to turn around the idea of a family.
Girar (‘to turn,’ in Spanish) will set itself around 365 corners of the planet, from April 13 2021 to the end of 2029. Girar will embody the spirits of Mother and Father, but always from another national context in each installment. Stories will be told in real time, on the date it’s supposed to be taking place, in whatever corner of the world Mother or Father are being imagined from.
