Summary
"Nineteen stories by 12 writers from across the region, almost all little-known or never before translated into English. Stories share common theme of human cruelty in different forms (political, personal, religious, etc.). Includes translator's introduction, biographical pages on each author, and extensive bibliography. Some compelling stories. Solid translations, if sometimes too similar in voice"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
