En una ocasi�n, Leopoldo Alas �Clar�n� afirm� que Emilia Pardo Baz�n era �uno de los espa�oles que m�s saben y mejor entienden lo que ven, piensan y sienten. Tratar con ella es aprender mucho�.

La cr�tica suele estar de acuerdo en que donde mejor se recoge su habilidad como escritora es, precisamente, en sus cuentos --valientes, modernos, de impecable factura--. Leer estas piezas supone una grata sorpresa.

Eva Acosta, bi�grafa de la condesa y una de las mayores especialistas de su obra, ha llevado a cabo una rigurosa selecci�n de sus mejores cuentos.

Fant�sticos, policiacos, realistas, humor�sticos, de misterio, hist�ricos o intimistas, esta antolog�a constituye una de las cumbres de la narrativa espa�ola del siglo XIX.


"She didn't call brief, fleeting flings 'love.' She didn't call sensuality 'love.' And sensuality doubled her sadness, vague and indefinable."

Leopoldo Alas, also known as "Clar�n," once stated that Emilia Pardo Baz�n was "one of the Spaniards who know the most and understand the best all that they see, think, and feel. Interacting with her means learning a lot."

Critics seem to agree that where she best demonstrates her skill as a writer is precisely in her short stories--brave, modern, and impeccably wrought. Reading them brings delightful surprises. Eva Acosta, biographer of the countess and one of the great specialists in her work, has carried out a rigorous selection of her best short stories. Whether tales of fantasy, crime, realism, humor, mystery, history, or intimate portraits, this anthology constitutes one of the heights of 19th-century Spanish narrative.
