A collaborative novel in English and in Spanish, written in New Zealand and Argentina. 2009: in Argentina, a woman prepares to travel to Italy for a funeral. In New Zealand, two friends discuss art, loss, and how to accept life as it plays out. 1969: a girl from New Zealand and another from Argentina are stranded in the airport in Rome. A friendship is forged and they exchange letters for a decade, until events take a sinister turn during Argentina's 'dirty war'. 2009: again in the airport in Rome, cancelled flights throw together two women whose lives have intersected in unexpected ways. The hidden threads of these friendships are drawn deftly together in one story. Amigas is a story of female friendships, how they are forged, how they endure across time and geography, how they stimulate and sustain.
