With great trepidation, Jacinto sets off with his best friend, the narrator, on a mammoth train journey.

Eca gives us a whole gallery of characters from Bazilio, the suave villain to Jorge, the smugly uxorious husband, from Luiza, the bored, empty-headed wife to Juliana, the plain, ailing maidservant desperate, by whatever means, to grab some of life's little luxuries, from Leopoldina, nicknamed 'the Ever-Open Door', to Joana the cook and her affair with the tubercular carpenter who lives opposite, and the voluminous Dona Felicidade who nurses an entirely unrequited passion for the unbearably pompous Acacio, who lives in concubinage with his much younger housekeeper, who is also having an affair."--BOOK JACKET

Contos by Eça de Queirós( Book )

147 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"José Maria Eça de Queirós (Póvoa de Varzim, 1845-Neuilly, 1900) no fue tan sólo el autor de novelas geniales como El primo Basilio, El crimen del padre Amaro, La ilustre casa de Ramírez o La ciudad y las sierras, pues de su pluma salieron también algunos de los mejores cuentos portugueses. Estos relatos, reunidos aquí en versión íntegra (incluyendo textos hasta ahora dispersos en otros libros), son una prueba más que evidente de la versatilidad temática de Eça de Queirós, creador de un "estilo" único y de un universo narrativo plural. Son múltiples también sus "imaginarios": desde el mundo etno-fantástico de "El difunto" y "El tesoro", o el maravilloso bíblico "El suave milagro" o "El aya", hasta el irresistible mundo de las mujeres adúlteras de "En el molino" y la crítica de costumbres que confirió a su obra de novelista el fulgor de la universalidad. " --Descripción de la editorial
