The Thief of Oblivions

These are stories about storytellers. José Zuleta is one of those writers who invests their life in refining the language, the scene, the argument —with the patience of a jeweler—, to get that rare light that every well-made story has to offer. This book was awarded Colombia’s National Literature Prize.
