"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.
