Kassandra (K) is 19 years old and leads a somewhat peculiar life. When her father, a drug trafficker, is killed in a settling of scores, she is forced to combine her studies with a very unconventional job: receptionist in one of the flats where men prostitute women against their will.
Under the threat of these men and the crushing load of the debt that afflicts her family, she experiences firsthand the horrors of the system of trafficking in women. The empathy for the women she meets there drives her to seek to defend herself and discovering Ram’s boxing club, run by a youngster whose life has also been marked by violence and who founded his gym to offer an alternative to the neighborhood boys who, like him, can easily fall into the clutches of violence, crime or drugs.
An explosive novel made of feminism, sister-hood, gender violence, empowerment, women and white slavery.

“Like a phoenix, this novel expires in every page to reawaken in the next. The woman behind Memories of a Savage does not write, she defeats. This is not a novel, it is women’s mother country. Nobody could have imagined such a fertile jungle.” Men Marías (2017 Carmen Martín Gaite Award Winner)
