SHORT STORIES. ALFAGUARA, 2014. 204 PAGES

This book is set on hostile territory.

The savage plains of the Mexican sierra, controlled by drug barons, where clandestine horse races take place, are described through a child's eyes; remote, inhospitable regions of Oaxaca where a couple will spend the final days of their relationship; and the battlegrounds of recent social insurgencies, which attract a kind of revolutionary tourism.

But especially dangerous are the depths of the gold and silver mines of the Sierra Madre, where few have ventured and lived to tell the tale.

"Maldonado knows how to tell a story, he has a sophisticated imagination

and enough literary skill to keep things interesting."

Álvaro Enrigue, CHILANGO
