In Villafáfila, Nana borrows a book from the Provincial Council's library: Life and Work of Miguel Hernández. A poet until then totally unknown to her. With the book in her hands, the scars of her life reopen after so many years and bleed an ink with which she tells her story piece by piece, as if her body were an onion, where the tragedies and miseries of all kinds are lacerating edges that cut his vital bulb, in a kind of compliments that make the reader empathize with his feelings and reflections from the first page to the last.

Javier Martín Lorenzo writes a beautiful and attractive novel, full of human miseries, tragic experiences and reflections, being both a hymn to life and a song of hope for social and personal justice. Everything, in a real setting, Villafáfila, with its people and its history, customs and traditions, while the beautiful poems of the poet sound in the background to the delight of those who want to meet Nana and her onion segments.
