After not seeing her father for 30 years, a young woman hails a taxi in Buenos Aires and realizes he is the driver. This “autobiography” goes beyond the anecdotal and tells how, from a coincidental meeting with the person she had given up looking for, Carolina was able to put her entire life in perspective and gain a better understanding of herself. This fresh good-humoured memoir follows her from childhood, through school, young adulthood, romances and jobs, everything that happened between when her father abandoned her and their reencounter. A mix of intimate diary, autobiographical fiction and chronicle, this book offers readers a sincere, intense text that is also fun and touching, and which shows us that sometimes life is a trip with unexpected drivers.
