Being economical with the truth allows a photographer to understand
something of which she would have preferred to have remained
ignorant. A chance meeting at a regimental reunion obliges a
veteran of the Korean War to confront his past. A walk-on part in a
Polanski film finds the narrator searching the director's face for
signs of the aftermath of Sharon Tate's murder. The internet search
for a book published in 1887, leads a writer to discover the life
of a passionate woman. The characters in Songs for the Flames are
men and women touched by violence - sometimes directly, sometimes
only tangentially - but whose lives are changed forever by an
unexpected encounter or by the operation of incomprehensible
forces. Sixteen years after his first collection, Juan Gabriel
Vasquez returns to the form with an outstanding set of nine morally
complex stories, fresh proof of his narrative versatility and his
profound understanding of the lives of others.
