7V strives to connect with you as friends who enjoy alternative ways of thinking and perceiving daily life. Rey Andújar’s work challenges the monotony of our surroundings and when his talent is blended with 7V’s ambitions the result is his provocative, funny, disturbing, sad, and triumphant Saturnalia.
This hardcover collection of fourteen short stories has been translated into English by Kolin Jordan and takes us to unexpected destinations. During your travels you will experience the excitement and heartache related to expatriation and immigration, revenge and desire, and music and belonging. Through it all we get the sense of a world striated by the unexpected.
