Aquí -también- pasan cosas raras. Sobresaltarse y no saber si fue una pesadilla queda tan lejano que parece el sueño de alguien a quien la realidad lo ha rebasado.

My review is based on the Spanish version of the book.
Muy bien escrito. Los relatos son inteligentes, tienen humor y realidad, además de que reflejan la cultura de la patria de Luisa.

El cuento "Los mejor calzados" es de lo más brutal que he leído en mucho tiempo. Prefiero los cuentos realistas que los más metafóricos (el último sobre todo).
