Bestselling Colombian author Juan Gabriel Vásquez previously won the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award winner with The Sound of Things Falling, and was a Man Booker International finalist with The Shape of the Ruins. He now offers up nine morally complex short stories about men and women touched by violence in his new collection, Songs for the Flames (translated to English by Anne McLean). Don’t miss your chance to hear from the author on these electric, vibrant stories telling how those with dangerous histories either emerge from the flames of trauma purified and reborn, or burned and destroyed.
