Lovers on All Saints' Day : Stories
by Juan Gabriel Vasquez




Overview -
From the award-winning, bestselling author of The Sound of Things Falling and Reputations, a brilliant collection of stories that showcases why he is one of the best writers--in any language--working today.

Lovers on All Saints' Day is an emotional book that haunts, moves, and seduces. Juan Gabriel V squez, the brilliant novelist, now brings his keen eye and rich prose to the themes of love and memory in these seven powerful stories.

V squez achieves an extraordinary unity of emotion with these fragmented lives. A Colombian writer is witness to a murder that will mark him forever. A woman sits alone in her house, waiting for her husband to return from an expedition to find wood for their stove, while he lies in another woman's bed a few miles away, unable to heal the wound in his own marriage. In these stories, there are love affairs, revenge, troubled pasts, and tender moments that reveal a person's whole history in a few sentences.

Set in Europe (the scene of V squez's own self-imposed exile from Latin America) and never before available in English, this collection evokes a singular mood and a tone, and showcase V squez's hypnotic writing. V squez is a humane, deeply insightful writer, and these stories leave one feeling transformed from the experience of reading them, with a greater vision of humanity and society, a greater understanding of relationships and of love.
