Dora García's world version for this book is "five conversations from which she has erased herself". Conversations she had with Carmen Roll, Franco Rotelli, Nicola Valentino, Giuliano Scabia and Eduardo Passos.

This tradition of anti-psychiatry and the “Basaglia revolution” are for García an occasion and an opportunity to investigate forms of artistic production that consciously decided to stay at the periphery of the mainstream.
