The Fragility of Bodies By Miranda France, Sergio Olguín Cover Image
Available Now


  1. The first in a series of novels by Olguín starring the journalist Veronica Rosenthal. It is set in Buenos-Aires and has been made into a TV series currently showing in Argentina.

  2. Veronica is a beautiful and successful young journalist with a healthy appetite for bourbon and married men. She is a fascinating and complicated heroine, driven by a sense of justice but also by lust and ambition.

  3. Sensual and tense, the novel is also fiercely critical of a system that tolerates the powerful and wealthy of Buenos Aires putting the lives of young boys at risk for their entertainment.

  4. There is a long history of novels featuring investigating women journalists digging into crimes and The Fragility of Bodies fit right in. Think of Baltimore Blues, by Laura Lippman, where Tess Monaghan begins in a series of a dozen novels, and by the third in the series, she’s a bona fide private investigator. Or Notorious by Allison Brennan, featuring the famous Maxine Revere. And of course Bitter Lemon’s very own Bettyboo by Claudia Piñeiro (like Olguin, an Argentine) with investigative journalist Nurit Iscar.
