Description: Dalia Rios, a successful Latina novelist, finds herself engulfed by the ghosts of an old trauma, a violent rape that she thought she had shelved years ago. The memories haunt her dreams, which are visited by two mysterious young men who know her sins. The past threatens her stability, her relationship with a much younger man and her new book, an exploration of racism in America. They also bring to the surface a volcanic anger that has been seething within her. She turns to a therapist whose unorthodox style repels her. The two clash in heated exchanges, but their confrontations lead her to face her darkest secrets. Dalia relies on her storytelling gifts to relive her past and examine her present. “The Comfort of Anger” moves seamlessly between reality and fantasy, delving into uncomfortable territory, from sexuality to racism, from psychotherapy to religion.
