Abstract: 
"La variedad es una de las características de Vocesueltas, variedad que encontramos tanto en el origen de los autores, que va de México a la Argentina, como en la temática, los asuntos tratados y los estilos. A partir de los ochenta el Medioeste, y principalmente Chicago, se ha convertido en otra de las regiones productoras de literatura en español. Es en Chicago precisamente donde un grupo de escritores lanzan esta antología de cuentos, que mucho prestigio ha de dar tanto a los autores y a la literatura en español de esa metrópolis como al español que se escribe en los Estados Unidos." *

Abstract: 
The journey begins in the suburbs of Chicago. An impulsive act of theft coincides with a gentle and inexplicable death. A long drive south to Louisiana follows the trail of an obscure folk singer, drowned years back in trusted waters. And before all the connections between the two deaths can be revealed, a series of hunches will lead Tom to some dark and depressing truths about the nature of fandom and the fallibility of instincts.

Abstract: 
Two writers decide to write a book together. They sit in the same room, nose-wrinklingly close, writing, trading pages, expanding each other's stories. ... Their narrative grows increasingly chaotic, linked only by harum-scarum leitmotifs and a mounting scatological lexicon. (back matter)
