Forests Have Their Own Doors

Carlos Yushimito

SHORT STORIES. DEMIPAGE, 2014. 272 PAGES.

What happens when monstrous things hide behind an innocuous mask; when the triumph of some becomes the failure of others; when one day we don’t recognize ourselves in the mirror? What would life be like if we couldn’t invent stories or contract a strange disease that wipes out our willpower?

Throughout these six stories, the exceptional hides behind a mask of the mundane. It isn’t the strangeness that is most notable, but the mastery with which it is ingrained in the everyday. Tenderness and cruelty mix harmoniously, a combination somewhat like a silent cat stalking our imaginations, waiting for just the right moment to pounce with lines that recreate a weird, perverse but compassionate world depicted in the author’s brilliant prose.
