Nineteen claws and a dark bird

Agustina Bazterrica


For many years, Agustina Bazterrica has been writing brief texts and short stories that Alfaguara has now collected in this volume. Nineteen stories that take us to the heart of our fears, our darkest, most delirious fantasies and the blackest humour. Texts that question love, friendship, family relationships and secret desires. Diecinueve garras y un pájaro oscuro (Nineteen claws and a dark bird) is a new, revised and expanded edition of a collection first published in 2016 under the title Antes del encuentro feroz (Before the Fierce Encounter). Several of the texts included here won awards (First Prize in the 2004/2005 City of Buenos Aires Awards for Unpublished Stories, and First Prize in the Edmundo Valadés Awards for the Latin American Short Story, among others). This is an enthralling read that reaffirms a style and depth that are unique on the Spanish-speaking literary scene.
