Synopsis: These six stories about love, women, dogs and death unite drug traffickers, politicians, delinquents, businessmen and policemen that share one trait: they all render homage to Death, to a violent death, so that it protects them from their enemies and grant them power, impunity, and money. In El perro de los ninos de la calle , a dog narrates the life of his master. In La calle de las vidrieras , an old Dutch man takes a walk through the red light district of Amsterdam to solicit the services of a woman behind a window for the last sexual encounter of his life.

Description in Spanish: Este es un conjunto de seis relatos que su autor ha subtitulado como Sexteto del amor, las mujeres, los perros y la muerte . El primero, que da ti­tulo al volumen, reune a narcotraficantes, poli­ticos, delincuentes, empresarios y policias que comparten un rasgo en comun: todos rinden culto a la Santa Muerte, la imagen de la muerte violenta, para que los proteja de sus enemigos y les otorgue poder, impunidad y dinero. En El perro de los ninos de la calle, un perro es narrador y cuenta como es la vida de sus amos. En La calle de las vidrieras, un anciano holandes se pasea por el barrio de las mujeres en vitrina de Amsterdam, deseando contratar los servicios de una para tener la ultima relacion sexual de su vida. Completan el volumen Inventando el pasado, Una condicion excepcional y En el pais de los diablos.
