My Friend Natalia (2019)
Natalia starts to see a therapist to help solve the problems in her sex life. The weekly sessions combine art, philosophy, literature, childhood memories, and erotic experiences as a method of treatment, and slowly they make Natalia lose all her inhibitions. She starts to enjoy the therapy – maybe too much?
The novel takes a deconstructive approach to the self-help narratives of our time and drives the tools of autofiction into a dead end, asking what is concealed, when everything is revealed.
The translation rights of My Friend Natalia have been sold to 11 countries.
