Terran scholar Rachel Monteverde journeys to Aanuk, a paradisiacal planet famous for both its beaches and the generosity and joy of life of its nomadic inhabitants. The Aanukians are not the only people on the planet, however: Rachel is eager to meet the Fidhia, a cave-dwelling people who share a congenital condition that makes them blind. Rachel’s relentless determination to communicate with them despite the Aanukien’s dismissal and the Fidhia’s secretiveness will yield more than she ever hoped for.????The first book by Spanish author Lola Robles to be translated into English, Monteverde: Memoirs of an Interstellar Linguist is feminist science fiction in the tradition of Ursula K. LeGuin and Naomi Mitchison.
