We are in the middle of the 21st century. The world as we know it has changed, but not much. Paula Pagaldai works for the VR industry. She´s in Paris in search of inspiration for a project on writer and proto-feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, and her time during the French Revolution. As befits an anticipatory novel, the reader will find countless exciting suggestions about the progress of society and technology, but in addition, the protagonist´s journeys will give us something to think about: the rigid boundaries between genders and the possibilities of overcoming them, the relationship we have with the past, the perks of online sexuality, the difficulties of heterosexual couples with children and the tricky balance between rebellion and comfort...

OFtal glasses are needed to fully enjoy this immersive novel.
