These two novellas are characterized by clarity of style and dramatic presentation of affairs of the heart. In First Love, two tourists befriend German prisoners of war in France, and experience the tension between primal human kindness and social conventions. Look For My Obituary explores a surrealistic, haunting love affair set in a world of arranged marriages.

Called the best writer in Mexico today by Emmanuel Caballo, Elena Garro was the winner of the 1996 Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz Prize for women writers in the Spanish language.
