Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Janna y Maudie poco o nada tienen en común. Janna, una mujer madura pero aún atractiva, dedica todos sus esfuerzos a una actividad profesional que en apariencia le permite realizarse. Maudie, una viejecita encorvada por los años y los sacrificios, se mantiene viva gracias al orgullo indomable que a menudo malogra sus relaciones con el mundo. Del encuentro entre ambas nace una relación de amistad que descubre el lazo común entre las dos: una ternura secreta, tímida y casi indecible que busca explayarse y que Doris Lessing perfila con palabras justas y bellas, dignas de una gran narradora.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONAt the center of this novel are two women—worlds apart, yet neighbors—who come together by chance in a neighborhood pharmacy. Janna, a middle-aged contemporary woman is the editor of a women's magazine. She is good at her work and her life seems to her a success. Then there is Maudie, skinny, rag-and-bone tattered and in her late eighties, she is a bundle of ferocity who has spent the last years sustaining herself on pride, and expressing that pride as a cat’s hissing anger. This strong and affecting novel traces the friendship of these wildly disparate women.
