‘Not since Guy de Maupasant has the short literary form been imbued with such grace, elegance and poignancy . . .these quintessential and often poetic pearls astonish, inspire reflection and entertain’ Morning Star
The internationally acclaimed last work by the bestselling Latin American writerMaster storyteller Eduardo Galeano was unique among his contemporaries (Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Mario Vargas Llosa among them) for his commitment to retelling our many histories, including the stories of those who were disenfranchised. A philosopher poet, his nonfiction is infused with such passion and imagination that it matches the intensity and the appeal of Latin America’s very best fiction. Published here for the first time in an elegant English translation by long-time collaborator Mark Fried, Hunter of Stories is a deeply considered collection of Galeano’s final musings on history, memory, humour, tragedy and loss.
Written in his signature style – vignettes that fluidly combine dialogue, fables, and anecdotes – every page displays the original thinking and compassion that made Galeano one of the most original and beloved voices in world literature.
