Who Doesn't

Claudia Piñeiro

SHORT STORIES. ALFAGUARA, 2018. 240 PAGES.

A powerful new story collection from Claudia Piñeiro. These tales portray everyday, familiar situations distorted by oddities that might ordinarily go unnoticed: minor obsessions that twist one's everyday routine or even lead to a crime, quirks that speak to the most hidden part of a person's soul.

A selfish man does something generous, a dead man speaks through the belongings he's left behind, a lonely man enjoys an absurd night of love, a couple creates their own hell, a famous writer takes refuge in their own prestige... the protagonists are haunted by ghosts, real or otherwise.

Blood pumps through these true, intimate and brave stories, sometimes in torrents, sometimes as a trickle across the fabric, reminding us that no one is safe from violence and that behind the ‘normal' masks we wear, we're all a ‘little odd'.
