The Purest Storm

Fernanda García Lao

SHORT STORIES. PLANETA, 2019. 233 PAGES

The stories in this book will appeal to intrepid readers ready to immerse themselves in a form of writing that makes no concessions to realism or pre-established formats. A writer who makes love to his grandmother's piano, a boy who bites a snake, talking hi-fi speakers, frozen women and paralyzed princes... these characters exist in a dreamlike state of surliness, humour, eroticism and madness.
Fernanda Garcia Lao's literary universes are utterly original, devoid of common sense, oblique but open to multiple interpretations. Like E. T. A. Hoffmann, Silvina Ocampo or Clarice Lispector, the author injects horror and weirdness into everyday situations to create unique, unusually compelling stories.
