Sinopsis:

Book by Lee Rebecca

Críticas:

The collection has so many good passages whole paragraphs that move into pages with never a misstep that any linguaphile could spend a great afternoon in a little spasm of dazzle. But a story is more than a collection of words, and these seven long tales demonstrate Lee s prodigious talent for creating not just great lines but intricately structured, impressively plotted worlds. " The New York Times Book Review"

Mesmerizingly strange . . . Full of shivers and frissons . . . Highly imaginative stories . . . [Lee s] eccentric eloquence . . . makes Bobcat so potent and unpredictable. Janet Maslin for" The New York Times"""

Sometimes you reach the end of a story and go quietly, Oh. And sometimes you gasp and go, Holy guacamole! Not because a building fell down or a character died, but because the unexpected yet completely understandable came to pass and made you fall off your chair.

[W]ith deadpan humor, Lee s light touch illuminates the contrasts in everyday life warmth and cold, past and present, beauty and terror imbuing her realistic tales with quiet depth.
