‘The boy with the shrews’ is the book that Ana Obregón will publish tomorrow, a text that her son, Aless, began to write when he was diagnosed with cancer and that after his death, the actress decided to end with a heartbreaking and moving testimony, “fully respecting the original version of Aless”.
We know of him that Aless’s texts occupy from page 159 to 231 of the book, 72 pages of the total of 312 that it has“have been fully respected in their original version,” the publisher HarperCollins said in a note on Tuesday.
“This work is a song to love and life, which I have written for nine months with red tears,” Ana Obregón points out in that same note.
“In this work I explain all the hurricane of feelings of a mother before the loss of a child and the long road to reach this blessing and miracle of a baby, Anita, who is your daughter”, the author comments about the book.
Through these pages, Ana Obregón undresses on a journey of hope, struggle, and strength, “where she shows a hurricane of unfiltered feelings and emotions, in which she immerses the reader in an unforgettable experience,” the editorial says.
“‘The boy with the shrews’ is a sincere, acid, ironic, vibrant story, with a unique sense of humor, which he could not finish, and that reveals to us the talent, charisma and personality of a young man who, without a doubt, would have succeeded as a writer”, he adds.
Just as in other cases the copies of a more anticipated publication (the second edition has already sold out in pre-sale) extracts of its content are filtered, on this occasion a great secrecy about the book is preserved, and is not for less.
Publisher HarperCollins has scrupulously maintained deadlines and limited its free distribution to ensure maximum profit from its sale, which is for good cause: It is expected that they will be allocated entirely to the Aless Lequio Foundation, whose objective is to finance projects for the investigation of Ewing’s sarcoma, a very aggressive cancer that mainly affects children and young people.
