From the Publisher

Horacio Quiroga’s short stories are infused with the themes of life and death that so obsessed him. They span many fiction genres—jungle tale, Gothic horror story, psychological study, morality tale—and possess a universality that has made him a classic Latin American writer.

Horacio Quiroga (1878–1937) was a master storyteller and author of over two hundred pieces of Latin American fiction that have been compared to the works of Poe, Kipling, and London. Like his stories, his own life from his birth in Uruguay to his suicide in Argentina was filled with adventure, tragedy, and violence.

"Quiroga’s stories are, like Poe’s, full of psychological shocks and eerie effects, and are bracingly, if ruthlessly, realistic."—New Yorker
