About the Author
Liliana Heker is the author of five volumes of short stories and two novels and the founding editor of two literary magazines widely read in Latin America. During Argentina's years of violent repression (1976-83), she continued to write and edit left-wing literary journals while also helping to give voice to authors silenced by the regime. She lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Alberto Manguel, an internationally acclaimed author and reader, writes in both English and Spanish.

Miranda France is a translator and writer. Her books include Bad Times in Buenos Aires and Don Quixote's Delusions.
Reviews
"...wise and idiosyncratic tales written over the past half-century and originally published over five volumes in Heker's homeland... The darkly comic tone that prevails throughout Please Talk Me, coupled with element of the improbable or absurd, have won Heker comparisons to Saki, Roald Dahl and Jorge Luis Borges. But for me, the stories of Anton Chekov repeatedly sprang to mind."-- Richard Canning, TLS--Richard Canning "TLS" (9/25/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"[Heker] skillfully condenses relationships into moments where a concealed feeling is revealed, its consequences are long reaching, and there is no turning back for any involved."--Jackie Trytten, Rain Taxi--Jackie Trytten "Rain Taxi" (9/25/2015 12:00:00 AM)
