From one of Guatemala''s finest young writers, these twenty-six stories--at once brutal and intensely lyrical--are peopled with sorcerers, ghosts, and assassins.

Springing from myth and beliefs indigenous to Central America and North America, where their action occurs, Rey Rosa''s tales give the sense of being dreamed. At the same time they can be read as metaphors for the terror and oppression of years of warfare.

Annotation:
This debut collection of short stories was translated by the noted writer Paul Bowles, who has translated much of Rosa's work from the Spanish.
