Paperback – 19 May 2016
A Colombian writer is witness to a murder which will mark him forever. A woman sits alone in her house, waiting for her husband to return, while he lies in another woman's bed twenty kilometres away. Through blood-soaked betrayal, a love affair, murder and long-meditated revenge, Vásquez achieves an extraordinary unity of emotion, morality and landscape with these fragmented lives. Achingly sad and beautifully crafted, The All Saints' Day Lovers is a remarkable and intense collection of stories that explores the depths of relationships, loneliness and cruelty.

The narrative escalates, the mystery deepens, and the scope of the story widens with each page ... Terrific
One of the most original new writers of Latin American Literature
A masterful writer
Vásquez is one of the great revelations of recent years
Where Carver abandons his Hopper-like silhouettes, Vásquez rescues them
In the architecture of the collection one thinks of what Tobias Wolff said, quoted in the afterword by Vasquez: "A collection of novellas should be like a novel in which the characters do not know each other" . There are literary echoes of Madame Bovary, David Copperfield, Georges Perec . A major name to follow
