About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Gardea, Jesús

From Library Journal:

This challenging collection of 25 stories will introduce its noted Mexican author to most English-speaking readers for the first time. Chaotic and disturbing, the stories often feature a woman or women pulling other characters between sanity and madness or between life and death. In "Forty Springs," for instance, a woman and her dying mother bewitch an antiques dealer into purchasing?but leaving behind for their continued use?a rotted 40-year-old wicker armchair. In "The Guitar," another typically disturbing story, a man dying from hunger, heat, and thirst, grieves for a stolen instrument that is shaped like a woman. Throughout, Gardea depicts an arid, austere landscape, lonely and empty, a landscape of beating heat on the exterior and cruelty, violence, and vengeance on the interior. For literary and academic collections, especially where there is an interest in Hispanic literature.?Mary Margaret Benson, Linfield Coll. Lib. McMinnville, OR
