My favorites were "La Lechera de Vermeer, which must have also appealed to the editors at Alfaguara, who used the painting for their cover , "La llegada A diverse collection of very short stories, with surprising narrative voices, it reminded me of Borges Ficciones , but had more graphic detail.
Yeats, and "Conga, conga" which should convert those few people who are not yet afraid of clowns. I think it is probably good for those who like this type of writing. There were some good turns of phrase and some very colorful ways of describing things but the actually story telling is rather odd and as it was similarly odd for each and every one, it became tiresome.
View 1 comment. I was shocked by the end of this book which is easy to read and easy to understand for someone not completely fluent in Spanish. I could easily have noted any of the other twelve stories. Mar 31, I. A very good collection of stories revolving around love and other strong emotions. I was sceptical at first, but my mind quickly changed when I finished few stories in the beginning that were exceptionally good. The things that I loved most were the metaphors the author uses.
They are simply amazing! The only reason I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 is that I find some of the stories a bit These vivid and dramatic short stories were originally written in the ancient Galician language of northwestern Spain.
Three of the stories, made into the film Butterfly's Tongue, deal with the relationship between a student and teacher in the year leading up to the Spanish Civil War. A praiseworthy introduction to Rivas's work.
The film Butterfly La lengua de las mariposas does justice to the short story, and adapts two other pieces of short fiction from this compilation. La Lengua-Tragic, but powerful. I got bored after a while. Apr 25, Kyle rated it really liked it Shelves: owned-books.

Rivas himself is a true Galician who writes with pride and love when telling the stories of his homeland. The history of Galicia is one of severe hardship and struggle, mainly being defined by mass emigration. This line gives an insight as to what the Gallegos went through at the time. And so people emigrated to where the jobs were, mainly Buenos Aires, where the Spanish people there are commonly known as Gallegos due to the mass emigration of the Galicians to the area. Furthermore, as this story deals with the Orquestra Azul, music is an obvious theme, and an important part of Galician culture also. Galicia is not known for the flamenco music and sombreros as the rest of Spain is, here there are very strong Celtic connections, with the Gaita Galega or bagpipes as their main instrument of choice. So not only are the Galicians geographically quite separate from Spain, their historical culture and background also make them quite unique.
¿Qué me quieres, amor?
