In this Traviesa anthology, Colombian writer Juan Cárdenas selects four contemporary stories that deal with teeth, nails, and those who fight "tooth and nail" in the battles of everyday life. These stories reveal "Nails and teeth that threaten, that cling to survival, but which appear too as emblems of a transitory life before continuing on toward stone and dust, after dispensing with us, their temporary guests," Cárdenas writes. Don't miss these stories by Daniel Saldaña París (Mexico), Carlos Godoy (Argentina), Carolina Sanín (Colombia), and Antonio Villarruel (Ecuador).
