Each short story of this book is a magic spell crafted with the indisputable rhythm and sensibility that are hallmarks of Galician author Manuel Rivas. The title Que me quieres, amor? stems from the story of a lover who abruptly changes his life after a bank robbery. Love pervades the characters of other stories, including the father who goes to work each night worried where his son has spent the night, our childhood recollection of our mother who ineffably resembles a milkmaid that Dutch painter Vermeer depicted in 1660, Carmina's most carnal love before the awkward presence of her dog Tarzan, and the compassionate love that the readers begin to feel for the old rural teacher in the "Butterfly's Tongue," a short story magnificently adapted to the movies.
