by Rosario Villajos
In 1927 E. M. Forster concluded that, in the novels, the difference between the story and the plot lays in a single word: pain. Thus, it is something very different that a king and a queen died—story—, than those king and queen died because of something: pain creates the plot. It could be thought that Ramona, from Rosario Villajos, fulfills this rule and that the story that we are told is that of the passage from childhood to adolescence through the very pain that this journey generates. It is, perhaps, for this reason, that both the protagonist and the gallery of characters that accompany her do not appeal to our compassion, nor will we find in them a search for redemption. In the world that Rosario Villajos creates, the journey of her heroine is that of someone who knows she doesn't even have the means to pay the price of the ticket. A world that is very similar to ours, whose story is that it continually rejects us and whose plot is that it does so with amazing ease.
Rosario Villajos was born in Córdoba in 1978. She spent her childhood exclusively drawing and watching films. She has lived in eight different cities, among them London, where she resided for a personal record seven years. In 2017 he published the graphic novel FACE (Ponent Mon). Ramona is his first book with more than three thousand characters.
She currently lives in Alcobendas. She has a forty-hour-a-week office job and twenty-five days of vacation a year.
