San Gabriel es un hacienda en el interior del Perú. A ella acude, por razones familiares, un adolescente criado en la capital. «Pero San Gabriel no es un casa, como tú crees», le advierte Jacinto, «el loco» de la familia, «ni un pueblo.
Es una selva». Y, de hecho, en contra de toda expectativa, lo que encuentra Lucho en ese mundo rural, de mucha generaciones de terratenientes, es una comunidad que, como toda comunidad cerrada y aislada por mucho tiempo, «con sólo respirar el aire, se envenena» y en la que «el pez más grande se come al chico» y «los débiles no tienen derecho a vivir»…Pese a la atracción que ejerce sobre él su prima Leticia, mala y perversa, Lucho empezará a sentir el peso de las miserias amorosas, las intrigas, las rivalidades, los engaños y la saña gratuita con los que se entretienen sus parientes del campo. Sólo el gran terremoto hará tambalear ese mundo hasta entonces indemne y, una vez «abierta la brecha, unas llaman a otras y pronto son legión».

The birth control pill has been called the most important scientific advance of the 20th century. It has been credited, and blamed, with unleashing the sexual revolution, transforming gender roles, redefining marriage and reinventing the modern family. So it's all the more remarkable that something so potent is so misunderstood. This book traces the invention of the Pill half a century ago by its unlikely pioneers from the early feminists looking for a way to free women from the fears of frequent childbirth to a prominent Catholic doctor who was seeking a treatment for infertility and instead found a guarantee of it. It traces the social upheavals that coincided with the Pill's arrival and asks which ones it actually caused.
It follows the unfolding attitudes of women toward the first form of contraception that they could totally control—and the backlash in recent years among social conservatives who once welcomed the pill as a bing and now challenge it as a threat. And it explores the social, political and philosophical issues that men and women face when considering the most private questions of family life.
