Slippery figures in anomalous situations - ghosts, spies, bodyguards, criminals- haunt these stories by Javier Mar#65533;as: the characters come bearing their strange and special secrets, and never leave our minds. In one story, a man obsessed with his much younger lover endlessly videotapes her every move,and then confides his surprising plans for her; in another, a ghost can't stop resigning from his job. Masterfully, Mar#65533;as manages in a small space to perplex and delight. "The short story fits Mar#65533;as like a glove," as Le point noted. His stories have been hailed as "formidably intelligent" (The London Review of Books), "a bracing tonic" (The Chicago Tribune), and "startling" (The New York Times Book Review).
