Editor and translator Kathy Leonard created this superb and diverse anthology to provide a literary outlet for the best of the new fiction by contemporary Latin American women authors. Through her work with the authors represented here, Leonard brings to these stories an uncompromised clarity of translation as well as useful biographical information about the authors. Subjects of the stories vary widely, with most of the stories marked with heavy doses of magic realism or black humor.
