Synopsis

Rosario Ferré irrumpió en el panorama de las letras latinoamericanas con su libro de cuentos Papeles de Pandora. Escritos en el estilo de las mejores historias fantásticas de corte psicológico, en estos cuentos se perciben ecos de Julio Cortázar, Felisberto Hernández y Edgar Allan Poe.

“La muñeca menor”, “Cuando las mujeres quieren a los hombres” y “El cuento envenenado” introducen temas como la venganza, los celos y el amor más allá de la muerte. Una tía solterona cose muñecas rellenas de miel; una joven bailarina cuenta su historia a través de cartas y recortes de periódico que sugieren mucho más de lo que dicen; una dama de sociedad y una prostituta forman una alianza sorprendente luego de la muerte del hombre que ambas amaron. Escritos con imaginación y elegancia, los cuentos de Ferré son evidencia temprana de su talento como escritora latinoamericana.
