Description

The erotic, surreal, and provocative stories of Last Night of Carnival, comprise an exile aesthetic, where the speaker is exiled from his homeland, from the stale middleclass values of his parents, and from dead pieties of previous generations that have become ossified in the culture. Romero creates a world as fantastic as any created by Kafka, Borges, or Calvino.show more
