Baile Con Serpientes by Horacio Castellanos Moya (2 star ratings)

Castellanos Moya is a bastard heir to the liminal fantastica of Cortazar, but melds it with an unsettling and visceral sense of imminent danger that proves him one of the great serpienttes Latin American authors. El viaje termina en una escena violenta donde muere otro personaje oscuro y el propio indigente de nombre Jacinto Bustillo a manos de Sosa. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Funny, horrifying, unpredictable, provocatively perverse. Eduardo absorbs Bustillo’s character, to a degree, and then adds to it.

But in a totally good attention-grabbing way.

Dance with Snakes by Horacio Castellanos Moya

Anonymous transparent language absolutely serves to move the story forward, but does so somewhat subversively, or in this case, serpentinely, although that’s not really an accurate description the sandwich hoeacio is more apt, with surprising bites of spicy jalapeno, mango, wasabi, eel.

You get the feeling Moya made the plot up as he went along. Dance with Snakes is still a powerful and affecting read, disorienting both protagonist and reader in a mad fit of lucidity.

Ludmilla rated it liked it Aug 31, There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The Best Books of It has to be one of the most effortlessly controlled stories I’ve ever read, completely self-assured and confident, not a twinge of self-consciousness, second-guessing or doubt.

The plump one with the cunning eyes would be Beti; the slender one who moved timidly, almost delicately, would be Loli; Valentina exuded sexuality with her iridescent skin; and little Carmela had baike air of mystery about her.
