A compendium of every short story written by one of the great Latin American masters of the genre: Liliana Heker.


As Samanta Schweblin writes in the prologue: «There is life and death in these stories, an unrelenting power struggle. On one side is failure, misunderstanding, loneliness and death; on the other is her characters’ obstinate need to forge on. Since they are always a step ahead, they demand that readers be constantly on the alert. But the rewards are great, and in exchange for taking this journey through the brilliance of childhood, tempestuous family ties, and passionate love affairs, these stories offer readers the revelation that, despite everything, they can be happy.»
