Ten stories with an unflinching gaze onto the fragility and brutality of life: a tabloid journalist tracks a pair of homeless lovers, a blackout extinguishes the lights of Monterrey, unleashing anxieties and criminal tendencies, a visiting teacher in a remote village witnesses a brutal incident of vigilante justice, a desperate young boy crosses the border in search of a father lost to the North.
Eduardo Antonio Parra (León, Guanajuato, 1965) is the author of two collections of stories and -winner of Mexico’s National Prize for the Short Story.
