A collection of Latin American short stories. I think Latin American literature is not studied enough in schools...or at least I haven't been able to incoporate it as much as I have always wanted. I have read several of the stories. Very good. It is a book I am reading for my creative writing capstone for SMU and will try to reflect some aspect of the various authors' techniques, etc in my own stories.
