Drug traffickers, politicians,criminals, businessmen, and policemen worship Holy Death, the image of violent death, to be protected from their enemies and be granted power, impunity, and money. During a fantastical 24-hour party where all is allowed, there are those who are even willing to offer victims in order for their wishes to be granted. In "The Street-Kids' Dog," Pick the dog is both narrator and participant in the angry life of these new forgotten ones. In "The Street of Windows," an old Dutch man walks through the neighborhood of the women on display in Amsterdam, hoping to hire the services of a stunning blonde to enjoy the last carnal relationship of his life. The tales that make up this work--which also include "Inventing the Past," "An Exceptional Condition," and "In the Country of Devils"--will take the reader through worlds that are dense, bizarre, and troubling because of their extreme similarities with the world we call real, where sometimes the dog within us howls in a dark room and the old man dozing in a nursing home refuses to let desire die.
