A darkly moving short story collection from one of contemporary Argentina's most revered authors
Philosophically engaged and darkly moving, the 20 stories in Nest in the Bones span three decades from Antonio di Benedetto's wildly varied career. From his youth in Argentina to his exile in Spain after enduring imprisonment and torture under the military dictatorship during the so-called 'dirty war' to his return in the 1980s, Benedetto's kinetic stories move effortlessly between genres, examining civilisation's subtle but violent imprint on human consciousness.
A late-twentieth century master of the short form and revered by his contemporaries, Nest in the Bones is the first comprehensive volume of Benedetto's stories available in English.
