Since then her novels, Te llamaré Viernes, Malena es un nombre de tango, Atlas de geografía humana, Los aires difíciles, Castillos de cartón and El corazón helado, along with her collections of stories Modelos de mujer and Estaciones de paso, have made her one of the most established and internationally renowned names in contemporary Spanish literature.
