Bompiani

Year: 2008

Pages: 99

An elderly woman rediscovers joy with the help of an unexpected friend, a parrot in the dumpster.


Anselma is a retired teacher whose self-esteem has taken a hit from her late husband and estranged children. Her life changes drastically one sultry, summer evening when she impulsively decides to take home an abandoned parrot found in a dumpster. Anselma’s friendship with her new friend, Luisito, causes the ice around her heart to melt. Old memories resurface: a lost adolescent friend, a disappointing marriage, and the abrupt ending of her teaching career. When a malicious neighbour tries to sabotage her newfound happiness, Anselma realizes what matters in life.
