Summary (From the publisher):

A collection of stories that brilliantly capture the absurdity of life. Valenzuela's view of life captures our imagination because we know how far it is from reality - cops in Buenos Aires are not afraid of dogs, latin lovers in cafés do make moves in the game of courtship, and the hotels in Venice overlook canals.
