Family Album: Stories, by Gabriela Alemán

Staff Pick

Alemán's collection of stories gives color and texture to a full tapestry of the Ecuadorian experience. Featuring a wide cast of memorable characters--from murderous spies to treasure hunters (who are literally out of their depth), and luchador movie stars to an American about to learn that the Amazon is not to be trifled with--these brief pieces elicit from the reader not just basic empathy, but emotions ranging from melancholy to laughter, demonstrating Alemán’s talent and confirming her status as an ambassador of Ecuadorian literature.
