The biting stories in this collection confront us, mortals, with the greatest fear of humans: Death. In these stories there are dead people that talk, people alive that fall silent and reflections about existential problems of humans in their journey through life. There is no escape from death, and no missed deadlines: love seems to be the only way to prevail.

Qué puedo decir: ¡¡¡GENIAL!!! Un libro que revive a los muertos que viven entre nosotros.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

Estos cuentos exploran con ironía y humor la frontera entre la vida y la muerte. Para los personajes de este libro, muchos de ellos muertos, la muerte es separación, fin, continuación, reencaarnación... pero, en muchos casos, la muerte, como la vida, es también un carnaval.
