Land of Smoke

Dazzling and hallucinatory, the stories in this collection recall the masters of magical realism – but with Sara Gallardo’s distinctive slant. An old man wakes up one morning to find that his beloved garden is floating away, with him on board. A young woman moves to Buenos Aires, bringing with her a replacement head. A meek German missionary leaves Paraguay for the Pampas, unprepared for what he will discover there.

Resplendent with otherworldly imagery and beguiling prose, Land of Smoke presents a uniquely compelling voice in Latin American literature.

Part of the Pushkin Press Classics series: timeless storytelling by icons of literature, hand-picked from around the globe.
