About this title


These concise, fast-paced stories speak of a reality so intense that it borders on hallucination, of the courage and resilience of people living through an apocalypse, of an arbitrary world in which fate is decided in seconds and irony is for survivors. The Better to See You is a powerful collection of short stories about contemporary El Salvador. Sixteen distinct voices from widely different backgrounds within Salvadoran society reflect the human condition during the most terrible and prolonged crisis in the country's history. The distinguished Salvadoran writer and poet, Alfonso Quijada Urias, provides illuminating insight into the vortex of revolutionary idealism and merciless repression in his native land.
