LET’S TALK ABOUT ...
War by Candlelight (2005)
THERE is a new writer in town and his début short-story collection is amazing. And his name is Daniel Alarcón; his book, War by Candlelight (2005). In spare, incisive prose and with much honesty in the telling, he weaves his magic, creating nine edgy stories set mostly in Peru, evoking the beauty and sadness of a vibrant land ravaged by politics and strife.
