The Word of the Speechless - Selected Stories

Author(s): Julio Ramon Ribeyro; Katherine Silver (Editor, Translator); Alejandro Zambra (Introduction by)

Fiction

The Peruvian writer Julio Ram n Ribeyro is one of the masters of the short story and a major contributor to the great flourishing of Latin American literature that followed the Second World War. In a letter to an editor, Ribeyro said about his stories, "in most of them those who are deprived of words in life find expression-the marginalized, the forgotten, those condemned to an existence without harmony and without voice. I have restored to them the breath they've been denied, and I've allowed them to modulate their own longings, outbursts, and distress." This is work of deep humanity, imbued with a disorienting lyricism that is Ribeyro's alone. The Word of the Speechless, edited and translated by Katherine Silver, introduces readers to an indispensable and unforgettable voice of Latin American fiction.
