Overview

The stories in Fragile Night explore the hearts and minds of women and men facing once-in-a-lifetime decisions and struggling against weakness, fear, and anger. In "What La Llorona Knew" a mother shares with her daughter a tragic secret that brings them closer together. In "The Remedy" two quarrelsome sisters drive their parents to distraction until the local curandera prescribes a remedy guaranteed to instill compassion in the most argumentative soul. The stories move between humor, lyricism, and tragedy as the characters emerge from their trials strong and unafraid to face the challenges and risks of life.

“. . . a lovely collection of stories—honest, luminous, humorous, and very touching. It reached my heart.” —Ursula K. LeGuin
