"La hora de los vencejos" is a collection of six stories that explore different approaches to the concept of evil and its manifestations in human behavior. The narratives center around a psychiatrist who discovers the symptoms of a phobia underlying the collective fear of an entire generation; an anguished mother who succumbs to a temptation during the night; a girl who reveals an atrocious mystery; a woman who is needlessly heroic amidst the brutality of war; and a group of young people who try to escape existential tedium through evil misdeeds.
