A BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION OF STORIES DEPICTING THE VARIED AND VIBRANT LIVES OF WOMEN WOMEN WITH BIG EYES is Mexican velist Angeles Mastretta's most widely read work, w available for the first time in an English translation.

Mastretta's women are vibrant, sly, wise, earthy, and full of life, with stories that mesmerize. From these pages, they gaze at you, each representing an aspect of what it means to be a woman with big eyes-able to see the world for what it is and to make an uncompromising life within it. Angeles Mastretta is a delightful storyteller, and these tales are shot through with sex and laughter.
