Original Title: Maneras de irse

The thirteen stories of this volume ponder several forms of loss, including those that come with the passing of the years, with the death of loved ones, and with the feeling of estrangement from the world. They are all different expressions of a sensibility that is constantly driving Hernández to write as she also pays intimate homage to people who endure in her memory and places to which nostalgia allows her to return. Easily recognisable in the succinct prose of these stories, resounding once again with echoes of the despair and humour that are so typical of literature of the absurd, is Hernández’s highly personal voice, one that has brought her awards for the poetry and fiction she has published in Spanish.
