On a dark and stormy night, two mysterious women invade an unnamed narrator’s house, where they proceed to ruthlessly question their host’s gender and identity. The increasingly frantic protagonist fails to defend his supposed masculinity and eventually finds himself in a sanatorium. A Gothic tale of destabilized male-female binaries and subverted literary tropes, this is the book's first English publication.

El Rey ist der König. Er herrscht über die Grenze Mexikos zur USA, ihm gehören hier die Menschen, die Länder, einfach alles. Er gibt Arbeit und Brot, er schenkt den Tod. Außer seinen Drogen gibt es nur Sand und Hitze. Lobo ist ein Sänger, er gewinnt seine Protektion, lebt im Inneren der Macht, bis eines Tages alles wieder zu Staub wird. Und zu Sand. Yuri Herrera Roman ist von spröder Eleganz und intensiver Poesie. Wie Juan Rulfo erzielt er eine halluzinierende Klarheit, die den existenziellen Konflikt zwischen Nord und Süd nicht beschreibt oder deutet, sondern ihm zum ersten Mal eine neue Sprache gibt, scharf und funkelnd wie ein Messer aus Obsidian, klar wie das Licht über dem Wüstensand.

These reflexology zones are the result of many experiences of massage and naturopathic practice. It turned out that myogeloses repeatedly related to the posterior iliac crest with lumbar segments. The treatments of these reflexology points bring excellent relief of symptoms for lumbago and sciatica. The preferred treatment techniques here are punctual massage and needling, of course, combined with physiotherapy and homeopathy . Dear friends of reflexology, thank you for your interest in my reflexology charts which have proven their effectiveness in nearly three decades. The charts of the »maps of health« represent the organs as icons. This offers a symbolic language which allows an orientation at a glance in all reflexology systems. The reflexology charts with their descriptive illustrations provide you with a useful aid for your treatments. Additionally you can use the result sheets for documentation of your experiences Joy and success with reflexology ! Ewald Kliegel
