In Walking Words world-renowned author Eduardo Galeano draws on the folklore of rural and urban Latin America to discover and retell "the stories of ghouls and fools that Id like to write." These tales are beautifully illustrated by his collaborator, the Brazilian woodcut artist José Francisco Borges, and become testaments to the power of stories to make and remake and enchant the world.
Eduardo Galeano (1940—2015) was the author of Open Veins of Latin America, Days and Nights of Love and War, The Book of Embraces, We Say No, and other works.

Editorial Reviews

Anyone with a liking for fables, aphorisms, myths, fairy tales, philosophical parables, childrens stories, lurid tabloid headlines or clever graffiti will find plenty to enjoy. . . . At his best Galeano rivals such masters of the fable as Kafka and that other Borges, and it is to their work that his haunting pages should rightly be compared. — Michael Dirda (Washington Post Book World)
