Item description for La Santa Muerte/ Holy Death (Spanish Edition) by Homero Aridjis...

These six stories about love, women, dogs and death unite drug traffickers, politicians, delinquents, businessmen and policemen that share one trait: they all render homage to Death, to a violent death, so that it protects them from their enemies and grant them power, impunity, and money. In El perro de los nios de la calle , a dog narrates the life of his master. In La calle de las vidrieras , an old Dutch man takes a walk through the red light district of Amsterdam to solicit the services of a woman behind a window for the last sexual encounter of his life.
