This bilingual version of Murado's contemporary beast-fable features both English translation and the original Galician, a language of northwestern Spain currently enjoying a renaissance after centuries of political repression. This collection of riddles in the form of prose-poems presents traditional elements and innovations to the genre which combine to create a highly original portrayal of the nature of desire.
