“My first visit to the gynecologist took place the day the first images of the Mars Pathfinder mission came to light, a fact that I remember because while Mom and the nurse went out to look at unpublished photos of the Martian surface on TV behind the curtain, I appreciated, on the monitor next to me, the no less unpublished portrait of my cervix and I had the feeling that there was an equally unknown world deep in my pelvic cavity ”. The Woman Who Would Come Monday collects three stories of humor and tragedy. Rastafarians, gringo surfers, angelologists and mermaids parade through its pages stranded in the Pacific of Costa Rica, where a decrepit Clint Eastwood visited. His characters seem suspiciously common to us, typical existences where nothing happens until that moment when everything takes a turn and, on the brink of the abyss –as it happens in life– they end up laughing at themselves.
