Published after the death of Sergio Loo (1982–2014), this bears witness to the author/poet's path to death with an illustrated book with a mix of poetry, prose, and both fantastical and anatomical drawings . With an anatomical atlas of the human body and a hospital room, Sergio Loo creates a kind of fictional, poetic autobiography marked by tumors, cancer, amputations. Through the discourse of the I know the most intimate of the characters, trapped in the discomfort, unfold: Peter with the self, Cecilia with both. The language is marked by a personal universe, almost melancholy: poetic prose is the medium, the eyes, the bones, the limbs of the protagonists. Operation to the diseased body is a tragic and hopeful end, with deep roots in the memory of the suicidal adolescent, of the one who is right.
