Umami dans Le Monde des Livres !

In the luminous Umami, Mexican author Laia Jufresa -skilled watercolorist of feelings- beautifully captures those moments after the mourning when life, like nature in spring, reasserts itself. Just as the sap returns to plants -painfully, yet urgently- here the weight of memory meets the imperious need to keep on going. (...) To invent a new language, to reclaim speech before it gets damaged in the silence... That's what this life manual -through the indefinable sweetness and delicatesse of the umami flavor- proposes.
