Precise, brief stories present the beauty and delicacy as well as the unease and oddity in everyday life. Spanish writer Antonio Lupez Ortega portrays life at the end of the 20th century, complete with timeless richness along with particular vices and discomforts. His vision and direct voice make the casual events of daily life seem unexpected and the unexpected seem almost casual.
