“¿Qué se siente ser extranjero y deambular en una tierra ajena aprendiendo de nuevo a todo, a respirar, a hablar, a sentir y a soñar? Los narradores ecuatorianos se aventuran a explorar en estos cuentos una manera de exteriorizar por medio de sus palabras lo que se siente al vivir en los espacios de otros.” Manuel Medina, The University of Louisville. 

“Es, en suma, un mosaico de historias unidas por tiempos rotos, por huidas que muchas veces llevan al vacío, uno lleno de vicisitudes, de dolor, de soledades y de ausencias marcado por un destino inexorable en una civilización incivil que devora a sus hijos.” Jorge Machín Lucas, The University of Winnipeg. 


“Cuentos magníficos, llenos de misterio, peligro, amor y posibilidades eternas. Estos escritores ecuatorianos están llevando al cuento a un territorio nuevo de este siglo.” Ernesto Quiñonez, catedrático de Cornell University y escritor de Bodega Dreams y Chango’s Fire. 


Cuentos migrantes is an unimpressive title for such magnificent collection of short stories by seasoned writers. The stories do not have a simple remit as it might appear; these are no forthright stories. Instead, they each take one aspect of the migrant experience and provide a whole new discernment of lives in a new country. After all, the heart holds a lot of representational weight. The characters identified by their status or gender (the woman, the husband), a clear set of conflicting rules to obey from both the old and new country, the places and times, people and events spotlight the tender underbelly of the human condition in all its glory and despair on these varied stages of fiction that emerge from the dark reality of migrant life. Without a doubt, Henry Tarco Carrera has rendered onto us an impressive and exceptional collection of tales. LatinoBook.Net
