BIANCO--Shadow Play, the Rats
Complicated relationship triangles plague the characters of these two novellas by Latin American writer Jose Bianco. In Shadow Play, three sections give focus to three different characters in turn, and each battles the dangerous balance between love and loss, as well as the varying forms in which the two sidescanmanifest. The Rats reveals the complex desires and motives involved in a twisted family secret. Intensely psychological, there is more than one mystery at work in the story."
