Canon, James

Tales from the Town of Widows

And Chronicles from the Land of Men

illustrated ed

€ 16.95

One Sunday morning, a band of guerrillas comes to Mariquita and takes all the men away, leaving behind only the priest and a fair-skinned boy disguised as a little girl. Without men, the small Colombian mountain village becomes a sinking wasteland filled with women resigned to food shortages, littered streets, and mourning. But Rosalba viuda de Patino, wife of the former police sergeant, envisions a different future for the town of widows. Declaring herself magistrate, she promises to instill law and order, and restore the failing economy and infrastructure--and proceeds to create a utopia far greater than any revolutionary's imagined ideal society. Deft, rich, and darkly humorous, "Tales from the Town of Widows" marks the arrival of an unforgettable new literary talent.
