“The wink of an eye and we are transported to an unexpected realm. In very few impeccable lines, Shua’s micro short stories open new vistas to our perception of dreams, myths, fairy tales, even of our everyday life. To read her is to discover another dimension in fiction: small is absolutely beautiful, and thrilling, and often disquieting.”—Luisa Valenzuela

Quick Fixes, a bilingual collection, reflects Ana Maria Shua’s ingenious blending of precise language, incisive humor, and incredible imagination into a unique style of sudden fiction.

Ana Maria Shua was born in Buenos Aires and has published over forty books.
