As es como l. a. pierdeses un libro sobre mujeres que quitan el sentido y sobre el amor y el ardor. Y sobre los angeles traicin porque a veces traicionamos lo que ms queremos, y tambin es un libro sobre el suplicio que pasamos despus 'los ruegos, las lgrimas, los angeles sensacin de estar atravesado un campo de minas' para intentar recuperar lo que perdimos. Aquello que creamos que no queramos, que no nos importaba. Estos cuentos nos ensean las leyes fijas del amor: que l. a. desesperanza de los padres, l. a. acaban sufriendo los hijos, que lo que les hacemos a nuestros ex amantes nos lo harn inevitablemente a nosotros, y que aquello de 'amar al prjimo como a uno mismo' no funciona bajo los angeles influencia de Eros. Pero sobre todo, estos cuentos nos recuerdan que el ardor siempre triunfa sobre los angeles experiencia, y que el amor, cuando llega de verdad, necesita ms de una vida para desvanecerse.
