—Also recommended by Matt, City Lights Books

Piano Stories presents fifteen wonderful works by the great Uruguayan author Felisberto Hernández, "a writer like no other," as Italo Calvino declares in his introduction: "like no European or Latin American. He is an 'irregular,' who eludes all classifications and labellings — yet he is unmistakable on any page to which one might randomly open one of his books." Piano Stories contains classic tales such as “The Daisy Dolls,” “The Usher,” and “The Flooded House.”
