Sus relatos han sido siempre celebrados por la cr�tica y los lectores y considerados muestras de la renovaci�n de la prosa latinoamericana. El amor, el deseo, la libertad, son temas fundamentales en su narrativa que destaca por su intensidad, la prosa vers�til y bella, la sensibilidad y la sutil iron�a que en ocasiones deriva hacia el humor negro.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The best short stories by the author of the unforgettable El cartero de Neruda / The Postman (Il Postino) gathered in one volume.

Sk�rmeta, in addition to being a novelist admired by millions of readers around the world, is a master of short fiction. This book collects, for the first time in a single book, the best stories written by the Chilean author and previously published in separate books: El entusiasmo / Enthusiasm, Desnudo en el tejado / Nude on the Roof, Tiro libre / Free Throw, Novios y solitarios / Couples and Singles, and Libertad de movimiento / Freedom to Move.

His stories have always been admired by critics and readers, and are considered examples of a renewal in Latin American prose. Such themes like love, desire, and freedom are essential in his narrative that stands out for its intensity, its versatile and beautiful prose, its sensitivity, and subtle irony that sometimes slips into dark humor.
