Summary
  • "This is Eduardo Galeano's last book, a masterful, deeply considered, and poetic autobiography, written in his signature style of short essays, fables, stories, snippets of dialogue, and epigraph-length fragments with illustrations. A mix of old and new autobiographical material, Hunter of Stories includes Galeano's reflections on death, written during the very last months of his life"--
  • "Master storyteller Eduardo Galeano was unique among his contemporaries (Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Mario Vargas Llosa among them) for his commitment to retelling our many histories, including the stories of those who were disenfranchised. A philosopher poet, his nonfiction is infused with such passion and imagination that it matches the intensity and the appeal of Latin America's very best fiction. Comprised of all new material, published here for the first time in a wonderful English translation by longtime collaborator Mark Fried, Hunter of Stories is a deeply considered collection of Galeano's final musings and stories on history, memory, humor, and tragedy. Written in his signature style--vignettes that fluidly combine dialogue, fables, and anecdotes--every page displays the original thinking and compassion that has earned Galeano decades and continents of renown." -- Publisher's description
