9781852425432: Symmetries (High Risk Books)

Short, sometimes very short, stories that capture the absurd. Valenzuela's view of life in Latin America works because we know how far it is from reality -- cops in Buenos Aires are not afraid of dogs and Latin lovers do make moves in the game of life. In the tradition of Calvino and Cortazar, the stories in Symmetries are also subtle parables on the art of fiction -- they engage our heads as much as our hearts.

Product Description:

Stories that capture the absurdity of life. Valenzuela's view of life captures our imagination because we know how far it is from reality - cops in Buenos Aires are not afraid of dogs, latin lovers in cafes do make moves in the game of courtship, hotels in Venice overlook canals.
