Paz Soldan returns to the short story genre, which he became known for. Love in these stories is an obsession, an elusive ideal, which once obtained, falls apart due to weaknesses and betrayals. In one story we see Ramiro naked in a motel room recalling the moments he spent there with his ex-lover; in another one, we see a man spy on his daughter while she makes love with many men who start looking more and more like him. From the very short stories to the classic, this book is a perfect manual for understanding love. Amores imperfectos by author Edmundo Paz Soldán. Published by Santillana Usa. This book has a 13 digit ISBN number 9788466307628 and a 10 digit ISBN number 8466307621.
