Senderos Books Publications

Senderos Books Publications feature works by Carlos Leonardo Baresh, a Canadian writer who spent much of his time on a quaint family ranch in the beautiful coastal mountains in the state of Veracruz, MX. Carlos Leonardo describes his work as libros de buena honda, meaning, books of good vibes. Originally, Carlos Leonardo wrote mainly for children, perhaps inspired by the need of his own offspring, but later on branched into short stories from his travels and stories with a mystical bent. Most of his works were published in Canada, in magazines, small anthologies and as audio-visual works. Now, with the advent of electronic publishing, Carlos Leonardo is making his work available to wider audiences.

Catrina and Armando

First edition 2016;

Paperback: 242 pages;

Kindle Edition: available now.

Description

We plunge into the whirlpool of mystical stories set in the year 1850, in the Mexican state of Veracruz. On the night of November 1, our protagonist, a floundering writer Armando, has a formidable adversary: Catrina—the Death herself. Armando's challenge is to write three stories, to which Catrina provides the setup. He has to write them in such a way, that the human characters defeat Death at her own game. If Armando succeeds, he is free to go; if he fails, he forfeits his soul to Catrina. The subject of the books may seem somewhat morbid, particularly to north Americans, but the reader will soon discover another aspect of the Catrina, the benevolent, often compassionate personage that is at the root of the Mexican culture. To laugh at Death, and to dance in the graveyards, is very much Mexican. After all, She is just a transition.
