"Entre dos ríos", Romina Zanellato



“Entre dos ríos” es la primera novela de Romina Zanellato. En ella, Alina, neuquina que creció al borde del helado Limay, viaja a Entre Ríos a conocer la tierra donde se conocieron sus abuelos, a orillas del río Uruguay. En su equipaje, lleva una lata de té con 47 cartas y 9 postales que su abuelo Santo le escribió a su abuela Aurora antes de que se casaran y huyeran a la Patagonia.

Este parece ser el intento de una nieta por tocar y sentir la tierra de sus abuelos, esas personas con las convivió en un paisaje tan distinto, de viajar al pasado y ver cómo eran a su edad. Pero Alina busca respuestas a su presente, indicios que la dejen decidir qué caminos tomar, imaginar cómo hubiese sido todo si sus abuelos no hubieran huido al sur, buscar señales para confirmar las decisiones que tomó.


“Recuerdo y sonrío, trato de comunicarles a estos viejos quién soy, que no sé qué vengo a buscar pero que acá estarían ellos, capaz yo podría haber estado en estas calles toda la vida, que ellos me conocerían a mí y a todos en mi familia.”

En esta novela, Zanellato escribe con oraciones breves y precisas que nos permiten recrear con imágenes vívidas todos los paisajes que la rodean. A través de esta historia, nos lleva a reflexionar sobre todos los tipos de amor posibles y si existe una manera de vivirlos. Editorial: Rosa Iceberg - “Between two rivers” is the first novel written by Romina Zanellato. In this book, Alina, who was born in the province of Neuquén by the icy Limay river, travels to the hot province of Entre Ríos to get to know the land where her grandparents met next to the earth-colored Uruguay river. In her suitcase, she carries a tea box with 47 letters and 9 postcards her grandpa Santo wrote to her grandma Aurora before getting married and eloping to Patagonia. It seems that this granddaughter wants to feel and touch this land to understand her grandparents, these people she grew up with in such a different landscape, to travel to the past and see how they were at her age. But she actually seeks answers to her present, clues that let her decide which road to take in the future.

She wants to imagine how life would be if her parents had stayed there and to look for signs that confirm the decisions she has taken.

“I remember them and smile, I try to tell these people who I am, that I don’t know what I’m looking for but that they could be here, perhaps I could have walked these streets all my life so they knew me and my family.”

In this novel, Zanellato writes brief and precise sentences that let us vividly imagine the landscapes surrounding her. Through this story, we are able to think about all the possible types of love and whether there is a way of experiencing them.
