Summary (From the publisher):

The bizarre merges with the whimsical in these wonderful, imaginative tales from one of Brazil's finest women writers. Here the limitless dream life of the mind becomes chillingly real as the supernatural turns commonplace and the fantastic transforms the everyday to bring us a new look at society's follies and man's fears. In the title story, "Tigrela," a sophisticated lady acquires the soul of a tigress...or is it something more? In "Ants" two students have a terrifying confrontation with the macabre. And in each one of these gripping fictions, the dark side of a superb storyteller's art works to defy us, shock us...and show us a strange, but undeniable truth.
