The rare thing is to live
Any moment in life is good to reconnect with the universe of Carmen Martín Gaite. We chose The Rare Is to Live because, through its lively tone, apparently light but very connected to eternal existential doubts, it festers that authenticity and that accurate vision of the essence of people that are the hallmark of this great writer. She does it through a woman in her thirties who, upon losing her mother, curiously explores the open family wounds not to close them, but to assume, as the title says, the absurdity of life.
