This collection -- "A brilliant fingerprint of the city of Montevideo" (Eduardo Galeano) -- includes the best of renowned Uruguayan writer Mane Benedetti's stories from over 40 years of publishing. In these stories of powerful sudden impact, Benedetti plumbs with deep psychological insight both the dreams and frustrations of the middle-class in a bureaucratic society, as well as the pain and disorientation of political exile. In his On Arts And Professions, Benedetti wrote, "the effect of the short story is the surprise, the astonishment, the revelation".
From the Publisher:
"Translations of 27 stories from over 40 years of writing by one of Latin America's favorite authors whose prose creates powerful surprises and compelling humor out of 'the terrors lurking in 'ordinary people' and things' in Montevideo. Fine editing and translating by Louise Popkin and 14 other translators, but lacking an introduction"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.http://www.loc.gov/hlas"Translations of 27 stories from over 40 years of writing by one of Latin America's favorite authors whose prose creates powerful surprises and compelling humor out of 'the terrors lurking in 'ordinary people' and things' in Montevideo.

Author Bio
James Graham
Though born in Newcastle-on-Tyne, Jack Higgins grew up in Belfast amid chaotic political unrest made even more significant by his family's political involvements. He later moved to Leeds, where he earned a teacher's certificate in 1958. This allowed him to acquire a variety of teaching positions that took him through Yorkshire and eventually to London, where he received a B.S. in sociology at the University of London in 1962. Before becoming an internationally best-selling author, Higgins held such jobs as circus tent-hand and tram conductor. But when his novel "The Eagle Has Landed" hit the bookstores in 1975, Higgins embarked upon a successful career writing thrillers varying in themes from organized crime to political and military conspiracies.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"An omnibus collection of 26 stories written over a 40-year period by an accomplished satirist and fantasist who might be called an Uruguayan Kafka (with an added dash of O. Henry)....At his best...Benedetti blends introspection, elegy, and sly humor in piquant revelations of the terrors lurking in 'ordinary' people and things." 03/01/1997
