About 'The Left Handed Son'
Lola is a mother of progressive tendencies, divorced and with two children, who is drifting from the youngest of them, Lorenzo, towards the obscurities of a neo-Nazi group. Rosario Izquierdo follows in this novel the most uncomfortable footprint of today and abounds in early motherhood and the old stigma of being left-handed. "When I watched Lorenzo freely use wax and colored rotus with his left hand, something was activated inside that gave me an inexplicable relief, as if the child's natural gesture was repairing internal fractures that had divided me long ago." In the attempt to recover her son, Lola will relate to Maru, a mother from a different social class who lives a similar situation to her own. In the background, the play of mirrors among women, the peripheries of cities or the potential of support networks in the face of the shortages experienced by those who have been very young mothers, matters of special interest to the author, which she approached from another angle in his previous novel, 'Diario de campo'. «Are we facing an autobiography? A textual experiment in social anthropology? An essay? A novel? It seems rather a wise combination of all those genres »(Babelia). In 'The left-handed son', Rosario Izquierdo alternates three narrative voices to reach an emotional and impressive human portrait.
