At a party, Lucina leans down to pick up her insulin syringe when she notices a thin thread of blood invading her eye. These hemorrhages will leave her blind, permanently or temporarily it is not known. She will be faced with darkness, helplesness and a return to Chile from New York and to her parents house, to everything she had fled, and this will lead her down the path of cruelty, and finally hatred. Sangre en el ojo won the 2012 Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Prize from the Guadalajara Book Fair, and it is a novel you will not easily forget.
