Things We Lost in the Fire by Mariana Enriquez

By Mariana Enriquez

a girl returns to the rundown suburb of Buenos Aires her kinfolk as soon as known as domestic. From the protection of her window, she watches as a teenage prostitute increases her five-year-old son in the street. They sleep outdoor, surrounded by means of pimps and addicts, psychopaths and purchasers, worshippers of the occult and corrupt police.

One day, the mummy and the soiled child are long gone, and the dismembered physique of a kid is located within the neighbourhood. Is the homicide a part of a satanic ritual, or a gangland killing? may well it's the soiled child, and if this is the case, is his mom a sufferer too; or an partner; or his killer?

Thrilling and terrifying, The issues We misplaced within the fireplace takes the reader right into a international of Argentine Gothic: of sharp-toothed little ones; of girls racked through hope; of demons who lurk underneath the river; of stolen skulls and secrets and techniques half-buried below Argentina's negative dictatorship; of fellows imprisoned of their marriages, whose in basic terms direction out lies within the flames.

Cuentos (Clásicos) (Spanish Edition)

Reunidos por vez primera en un único volumen, los relatos cortos del gran polígrafo mexicano Alfonso Reyes constituyen una lectura amenísima que muestra no sólo l. a. elegancia estilística del autor, sino también su inteligencia y su fino humorismo. Además encontramos aquí un aspecto menos difundido de Reyes: su picardía.

Wäre doch gelacht (German Edition)

Ihre Worte setzt sie einmal so knapp wie möglich, ein andermal jongliert sie mit ihnen. In der Eigenwilligkeit ihrer Sprache, die den Charakter ihrer Protagonisten widerspiegelt, verschmelzen Tania Kummers Erzählungen zu einem einheitlichen Ganzen.
