Darkly comic and highly entertaining, Javier ValdEs's stories insinuate themselves in the unsuspecting reader like a heady brew with a strange kick. From the exploits of an urban vigilante to the erotic pleasures exacted from an unrequited love, from a menacing treasure to a family that brings a whole new twist to the meaning of neighbors, People Like Us is seasoned with irreverent takes on ValdEs's favorite writers and directors-such as Stephen King and Martin Scorsese-as he delivers a unique array of fascinating and hapless urban creatures.
