The tasks entrusted to him by his teachers in high school were the reason for Rosa Maria Taliercio (22) began to write stories, which he kept and over time became “Woman of flesh and blood”, the work presented in the international Book Fair in Buenos Aires that began on April 28 and ends on May 16.
She was born in Misiones, but lives in Buenos Aires, she graduated as a textile and clothing designer, teaches English and studies French. Her love for literature began as long as she can remember. The thing is his dad read him stories every night before going to sleep until an accident ended his life.
“We were one day on the coast and dad had climbed onto the roof of the house to fix a problem with the water tank and fell. She spent three months very badly, in a coma, intensive care and underwent eight operations, “Rosa said in a dialogue for Via Country.
“He was improving, he went to rehab, but the truth is that after a few weeks his heart could not continue, He went into cardiac arrest and died”, he indicated and added: “He stimulated me a lot in reading because I always saw him read. His stack of books is still on his bedside table.”
Her father was one of the engines for her to be encouraged to publish her book, a little before he died. Together with the independent publisher “Dinastía” she shared her creation. “I always had that need for the works not to be stored in a drawer”commented.
– What is “Flesh and Bone Woman”?
“Woman of flesh and blood” was actually born from the idea of publishing because I had several stories, poems and separate writings. I had the opportunity to publish and there a challenge began because my writings were not really born to compose a single book.
Looking for a connection I realized that most of the protagonists were women in different contextssituations, but they all united the same thing in a certain way: doubts about who they were, that they were looking to get to know each other better or that they were trying to discover some part of them, basically looking for his identity.
– Why the name?
In the history of art subject at the faculty we began to see the surrealists and there was a game that they made very interesting called “exquisite corpse” and that was used in literature as a method. For example, Pablo Neruda and García Márquez called it “Poemas a la limon”, they changed the name, but it is exactly the same. So that’s why mine is also called “lemon anthology”with that I tried to find a common thread to everything.
– The International Book Fair began and you are part of it, how do you live it?
The truth is that it is very interesting and exciting because with the pandemic it was two years without being able to meet at the Book Fair in person, so with all the anxiety of meeting other authors again, very excited.
– Are you writing something now? Do you plan to publish another book?
I am always writing. That paper is left lying around for months and then I pick it up again, but I am always writing. My idea is to continue publishing because I really liked the experience and I think that the following ones will be much more enriching.
– When is the signing of copies?
On May 14 is the signing of copies at 4:00 p.m. in the blue pavilion of stand 325.
