Original Title: Los buenos vecinos

The eleven stories in this book shape Clara Pastor’s singular imaginary universe which covers several geographies but also very precise milieus that are recognisable because of the characters’ feelings, which almost always emerge subtly because most of them try to avoid ruffling the calm surface of appearances. In many of these stories, things are born and die almost unnoticed by the characters unless, perhaps, when the latter are children.

Praises

«Clara Pastor is revealed as a writer who should be kept very much in mind, for she has brilliantly made her debut with what is perhaps the most difficult literary genre».
ABC

«A beautiful book, delightful in both its natural, easily flowing prose and the skill with which the author pulls the strings of the plot. It fascinates with everything it hints at and delivers to the reader’s imagination and sensibility».
El Boomeran(g)

«Very high doses of imagination, intelligence and sensibility».
Fulgencio Argüelles, El comercio
