Part dark fairy tale, part mystery, Yiza is the story of three home street children on the run. One evening, not long after her arrival in Germany, six-year-old Yiza is abandoned at the market where she spends her days. At a shelter for migrant children she meets two boys, Schamhan and Arian, and together they run away. Trekking through snowy forests and housing settlements, they evade police custody, subsisting on the margins of society and doing whatever it takes to survive. Both boys are protective of Yiza but are blind to the moral and emotional complexities of their actions. When Yiza falls ill they take shelter in a greenhouse and Arian spends his days begging for food and medicine, but before long they are discovered. When Yiza is illicitly taken into foster care and confined the novel reaches its brutal denouement as we see that Schamhan and Arian will do anything to be reunited with her. Narrated in simple language and with an innocent charm that belies its social reality, Yiza is a pertinent and timely tale of displacement and suffering.
En 1924 Horacio Quiroga publica El desierto, colección con tres partes claramente diferenciadas. En la primera se recogen dos relatos de Misiones, a orillas del Paraná, un escenario tan querido por el autor. En la segunda, cuatro cuentos urbano-románticos, aunque dos de ellos con giros fantásticos que los diferencian de lo convencional. La última parte reúne cinco apólogos o fábulas, que exaltan el poder transformador de los sentimientos, sintetizando así el tema principal de la obra quiroguiana: el amor humaniza y el odio embrutece.

Hitler’s past and secret personal issues are especially unsettling, but they do explain much about the type of man he was. I will not say anything further so as to not spoil any information in the book, but I will highly recommend the read.” – Butch O. (Stewartstown, USA) “I had no idea until today that the Nazis were so advanced in their technology for the time. Their forays into the world of night vision equipment is surprising. Who knew that such an advent was even thought of at this point in history? I suppose we should be thankful that their research into this and other things like weapons did not progress too rapidly…” – Becky D. (Iron Gate, USA) “The treachery of the Nazi regime of Germany seemingly knew no bounds, and this book brings new evidence of that to life. Their counterfeit money scheme was bad enough, but wait until you read about the Lebensborn program. Truly despicable, and not surprising that this was something they tried to keep hidden.” – Tim W.
