Description

Short stories: "The Pyramids' Tips" is set in Cairo, Egypt, during Josian's and Luis's first trip outside of Puerto Rico. Separated from his sick mother, Luis feels free for the first time in his life, falling in love at first sight with the Arab world. Eager to live every second fully, he surrenders himself to the experience. Josian, who organized the trip and worked for months to afford it, feels subjected by Luis's sudden independence and transformation. Josian's discomfort soon transforms into loathing for everything Arabic. Will Luis enjoy Egypt's magic? Or will Josian win in his struggle to impose himself on the enchantment that is distancing Luis? "Beasts and Beasts" takes place in a remote fictional past, where humans are born with a wolf tied to their bodies by an umbilical cord. The setting is a harsh desert where survival is unlikely, forcing the population to live in a walled city. To keep order, humans have to tame the wolves' bestiality by keeping them under permanent blindfold. Games is a young man who wishes to coexist inside the walled city, however under the tutelage of a radical teacher, he attempts to reconcile with his wolf nature.
