Mothers and Dogs


by Fabio MorĂ¡bito Translated by Curtis Bauer

“The stories in Fabio Morábito’s Mothers and Dogs, beautifully translated by Curtis Bauer, are deceptively plainspoken. That’s how Morábito hooks you. The directness of the writing belies just how strange the most ordinary-seeming day can and does become. I flat-out loved this book.” —Peter Orner, author of Still No Word from You and Maggie Brown & Others

“Morábito has a remarkable gift for capturing those moments where we’re pushed outside of ourselves, beyond our comfortable routines and social scripts, suddenly in a different story than the one we thought we were living—those little lies and encounters between strangers that haunt someone for a lifetime. The results are just as often subtly, simply poignant as they are shocking and mordantly funny. A master storyteller at work.” —Kim Fu, author of Lesser Known Monsters of the 21st Century

“Morábito’s stories are haunting in their loneliness, cutting in their absurdity, surprising in their hilarity. They conjure vivid urban landscapes populated by individuals weighed down by memories, landscapes that feel both familiar and oddly surreal. These stories will stay with me for a very long time.” —Dur e Aziz Amna, author of American Fever
