Each of the stories in this book is an extraordinary piece of literature.

Chispas

Luis Goytisolo
Chispas

Short stories and novellas, Anagrama (May 2019)

Sparks, vignettes, details of everyday life observed without mercy, with humor and a few touches of eroticism and eschatology.

The monologues of someone who observes, half-heard dialogues, hodgepodges, fragments, details of a reality that often kindle sparks. Sarcastic texts, as brief as they are blunt, that record the universal nonsense without condemning it (since the readers are the ones who have to draw their own conclusions), drawing a sad picture before which, as Seneca says in the sentence attributed to him that closes the book: “You have to know how to make fun of life, and if you do that, it can even be funny.”

Bestiario

Pablo Neruda
Bestiario / Bestiary

Illustrated Book, Libros del Zorro Rojo (May 2019)

The value of the twelve odes that make up this Bestiary does not lie in the fabulousness of the animals that it comprises, but in the transversal journey of the work in which the deepest character of the poet unfolds.

The delicate work of Luis Scafati reveals a careful reading on the work of the Chilean poet.
