Proceed with Caution, a newly translated story by Patricia Ratto
Translation of prose fiction by Patricia Ratto
Schaffner Press, 2021
In the tradition of surrealist masters Julio Cortázar and Leonora Carrington, and joining contemporaries Guadalupe Nettel (Bezoar & Other Unsettling Stories) and Samanta Schweblin (Mouthful of Birds), Argentine writer Patricia Ratto’s English language debut collection, Proceed with Caution, offers an alternate reality that is both mysterious and familiar . . . Translated from the Spanish by PEN/Heim award-winner Andrea G. Labinger, Proceed With Caution is a striking collection, brimming with emotion, animal instinct, and a sense of wonder that announces the arrival of a compelling new voice in Latin American literature. – Goodreads
