Praise

“The late Peruvian writer’s knack for the uncanny is on display in these gripping stories culled from a body of work spanning 40 years … [T]hese pieces dig into the human psyche with sharpness and wit.” —Publishers Weekly

“Sometimes bleak, sometimes warily humorous … Ribeyro’s stories often offer unexpected twists, their characters mysteriously disappearing in a flurry of snow or puffs of smoke … A welcome selection of prose that introduces a Latin American master to English-language audiences.” —Kirkus

“A magnificent storyteller, one of the best of Latin America and probably of the Spanish language, unjustly not recognized as such.” —Mario Vargas Llosa

“Ribeyro writes a painting, or linguistically paints a scene in which quiet gestures…communicate as much if not more than the textually explicit or the explicitly textual.” —Letras Hispanas
