Escritos a lo largo de mas de medio siglo, buena parte de ellos ineditos o nunca antes publicados en libro, los relatos aqui reunidos constituyen una sintesis del talento de Tomas Eloy Martinez y de los asuntos que lo asediaron toda su vida: los desgarramientos de la realidad argentina, el peronismo y sus emblemas, el exilio, la sexualidad y la muerte. Un fallido intento de intercambio de cadaveres ilustres los de Evita y Aramburu con la ayuda de un camion cisterna como vehiculo y refugio; la vida de una mujer que despliega todos los dias una coreografia en una estacion de trenes neoyorquina; la semblanza ironica de un nino prodigio destruido por una madre posesiva; el enfrentamiento entre el ejercito y unos obreros en las afueras de la ciudad de Tucuman poco despues de 1955; las legendarias andanzas de dos asaltantes de la decada del treinta son algunas de las historias que abordan estos cuentos. Al filo de la cronica periodistica o lanzados a las mas delirantes maquinaciones de la ficcion, estos relatos brillan por su absoluta vigencia y confirman la dimension literaria de un autor imprescindible.
