Of My Real Life I Know Nothing

Front Cover
Latin American Literary Review Press, 2008 - Literary Criticism - 143 pages

Ten stories complete this collection of emotionally charged characters connected through a complex interweaving of repeated themes. Their tales include the humorous dynamics of a tour group in Italy; the haunting reality of a man who loses interest in his soccer team; a dead mother whose ghostly apparition wanders the city streets at night; unusual relationships between couples; and the transformations of the everyday. The rigorously detailed stories conceal the twist endings that await, allowing a glimpse into strange and amusing worlds where nothing is taken for granted and everything is open to question.
