Eine der erfolgreichsten literarischen Stimmen Mexikos zeigt uns die Welt noch einmal neu. »Ich weiß, dass mein Geist langsam ist, zumindest verglichen mit dem der Standardmenschen.« Dies sagt Karen, eine junge Mexikanerin. Zu Beginn des Romans ein verwahrlostes autistisches Mädchen, lernt sie in der Obhut ihrer Tante, »ich« zu sagen und »ich« zu werden. Das Meer und die großväterliche Thunfischfabrik werden ihre liebsten Orte, Wesen mit Kiemen sind ihr näher als »Standardmenschen«. Dabei hat sie letzteren viel zu geben, Ideen, Engagement, sogar Profit. Aber eines Tages steht alles auf dem Spiel, und auch die letzte Verbindung scheint gekappt wie ein Sauerstoffschlauch. Sabina Berman ist ein umwerfender, überraschender, wilder Roman gelungen. Mit Karen gehen wir auf Tauchgang und stellen fest: Der Mensch ist es nicht, der die Welt im Innersten zusammenhält.
