An unforgettable collection of stories by one of the world's most revered writers.

Slippery figures in anomalous situations ghosts, spies, bodyguards, criminals haunt these stories by Javier Maras: the characters come bearing their strange and special secrets, and never leave our minds. In one story, a man obsessed with his much younger lover endlessly videotapes her every move,and then confides his surprising plans for her; in another, a ghost cant stop resigning from his job. Masterfully, Maras manages in a small space to perplex and delight. The short story fits Maras like a glove, as Le point noted. His stories have been hailed as formidably intelligent (The London Review of Books), a bracing tonic (The Chicago Tribune), and startling (The New York Times Book Review).
