Adolfo Bioy Casares
All short stories by Adolfo Bioy Casares, in one book. ...There are cinematic detective stories, and stories with a Gothic tone where apartment buildings take the place of the castle or mansion, although there are also big, rambling houses.

Los terneros / The Calves
Rodrigo Blanco Calderón is one of Latin America’s leading young short story writers. After his foray into the novel with the extraordinary and unclassifiable book The Night (Alfaguara, 2016), Rodrigo Blanco is back with seven fascinating stories. This tableau of wonders is inhabited by strange, appealing characters: a taxidermist painter marooned in a hostile society; a blind man who knows his labyrinthine city like the back of his hand; a female motorcyclist who rides naked through the night; a foreigner who learns a language making confessions in Paris churches; and a dying pilot who finds peace listening to a reading of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Alicia Giménez Bartlett
Mi querido asesino en serie / My Dear Serial Killer
A middle-aged woman is found dead in her own house. This is undoubtedly a murder, but a very special one: the woman has suffered a ferocious attack and her face has been slashed. On her corpse, a spiteful love letter.
Petra Delicado, Fermín Garzón and inspector Roberto Fraile, from the regional police, share the investigation of the case. It will not be the last female victim with identical criminal characteristics. Are the two police forces facing an unusual serial killer? Everything seems to indicate so.
Alicia Giménez Bartlett has come back with a new Petra Delicado case.
Cabré's reflections on reading, writing, music and art gathered in a single volume.
Jaume Cabré conceives literature as a search. Throughout the years, this search has been generating doubts in him, testing him and even setting traps for him. From the knowledge of someone who has been giving answers and solutions to the creative process for decades, Cabré has written three testimonial and theoretical texts that are a treasure for any lover of literature and art. They are texts written with the complicity of those who recognize themselves, above all, as a reader, as a listener, as a spectator.
