Belén Gopegui burst onto the Spanish literary scene in 1993, bowling over critics with her debut, La escala de los mapas [The Scale of Maps], which was hailed as a masterpiece. She has since published six more novels, stories and screenplays. This is her first translation into English.  Gopegui was born, and lives in, Madrid.
