Ghost Limb by Marisela Treviño Orta

Set in Argentina during the period of State terrorism of the 1970s and 80s and riffing on the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter, Marisela Treviño Orta’s Ghost Limb tells the story of los desaparecidos—the disappeared of Argentina—and the mothers who fiercely protested the military dictatorship who took their children.
