With an introduction by Jean FrancoFrom the Back Cover:
"Quiroga's stories are, like Poe's, full of psychological shocks and eerie effects, and are bracingly, if ruthlessly, realistic."--New Yorker
"As an author of the macabre and of nature, Quiroga redefined the borders of the fantastic, realizing that pure realism was an abomination of the marvelous and horrific reality of the Latin American jungle."--Review: Latin American Literature and Arts
