To give a reader an idea of their nature and diversity, here is the set-up for six of them: Two boys living in a Lima slum with their grandfather are forced to go scavenging every day for scraps to eat and to feed the pig grandpa is raising the title of this story is "The Featherless Buzzards". A man comes across a silver pin in a trash pile and begins to wear it on his suit coat; suddenly he is admitted into a capricious, cabalistic organization "If someone should ask me what our organization stands for, I wouldn't know what to say.
A zambo of mixed Indian and Negro blood bleaches his hair and lightens his skin in an effort to pass as white; he goes to America and ends up having to fight in Korea to avoid deportation.
Luciano, a young up-and-coming hale-fellow-well-met from an impoverished background, is suddenly confronted by his deadbeat father who had disappeared for eight years.

Carmen, a Spanish girl living off her charms as an evening companion for men, goes around Paris ripping down travel posters with which to decorate her hovel and to dream.
Marginal Voices: Selected Stories by Julio Ramón Ribeyro
Ribeyro's style definitely is Latin American, but it is not as otherworldly or laced with magical realism as many. Thus, I suspect that Ribeyro should be more accessible to the average American reader. He certainly is a writer worth reading. I would not ordinarily be reading Ribeyro in English, but for the fact that my partner is offering a course of Latin american literature in translation, so here I am, looking for them. I already have his collected works in Spanish. And this collection has my favorite story "Featherless Buzzards". Ribeyro is an undisputed master teller, and a most accute critic of Peruvian society.
His stories cover a whole range of topics and takes on the foibles of his country. This book is filled with the most beautiful stories I have ever read, by any author, Latin American or not.

The stories are simple, yet profound and will touch your very soul. This book is a terrific introduction to Ribeyro and should not be missed by anyone who enjoys as lovely, yet simple, story.
