The gender conflicts of a girl in the 1990s, the memory of a recent past and the portrait of a generation.
Story of a Girl Panicking about Becoming a Woman is a book that speaks in first person of the problems suffered by a girl in the 1990s. Tradition, her family, the importance of friends, the clichés of life in a provincial capital, clothes, misunderstandings, haircuts, the attitude of men, the rejection of binary roles, her first period and her fears of growing up as a woman.
In the author’s words: “the diary of a gender conflict many of us had, in a time when there were no queers, only weirdos, when we were considered prettier if we didn’t speak, and almost all flings ended in a wedding”. This is the memory of our most recent past and the portrait of a generation.
Maria Herreros’ most courageous and personal book.
