Guadalupe Dueñas is one of the lesser-known Mexican writers by the reading public, but one of the most admired by the authors themselves. A prolific storyteller of the 20th century, she turned the short story into an art through modern fables that present passions and human defects with various nuances. From a rigorous and essential handling of literary language, phrases that break the commonplace and a bittersweet sensibility, she elaborates precise portraits, allegories of the human condition. Every Saturday and Other Stories she includes a volume of 19 stories —some written in the workshop of the Mexican writer Agustín Yáñez— in which the female characters stand out and reflect a refined style in one of her best creative periods. With this literary compilation, we are sure that the author's voice will transcend time.
