El Beso Del Cosaco

Front Cover
Tusquets Editores, 2000 - Fiction - 262 pages
After an absence of over sixty years, Elsa Medina Osorio appears at La Desembocadura, the big, old, run-down family house that she instantly recognizes through the unmistakable stench of spuds and artichokes that it exudes. She has returned with the intention of holding a huge party in order to be able to die happy. Maybe it's that familiar smell, or her own unbridled imagination, or the letters from her sister Magdalena, or the years that gave gone by, that grant her the power of bringing back the dead, especially those who have succumbed to the kiss of the enigmatic Vladimir the Cossack. Slowly, the house fills up with the lineage of the Medina. No one will miss this party, not even the longed-for but deadly Vladimir.
