About the Book

"This is a gem of a collection of Olga Orozco stories, beautifully rendered into English. This wise selection of stories reveals Orozco's lyrical, as well as mysterious, prose. The translators provide an excellent introduction to Orozco's haunting and illuminating saga of childhood on the Argentine pampa."— Marjorie Agosin, Wellesley College

This collection introduces readers to the hallucinatory yet lucid world that Olga Orozco's young narrator, Lía, inhabits and animates with her prodigious imagination and the reality of small-town life on the Argentine plains in the 1920s.

Olga Orozco (1920–1999) is considered to be one of the major Argentine writers of the twentieth century.

About the Book

Orozco’s stories portray, in impressionistic, and dreamy language, a childhood spent in a small town on the Argentine pampas.
