Synopsis:

"Excellent translation of Busca mi esquela and Primer amor, two novellas awarded the 1996 Sor Juana In es de la Cruz Prize. Provocative, haunting fiction whose author deserves to be studied and read for works other than her Recuerdos del porvenir"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
