Antonio, congratulations on your recently published novel Barefoot Dogs!
Thank you! It’s not a novel, though. It’s a collection of short stories.
Oh. I was told your book tells the story of a single family in exile, so.
Yes, Barefoot Dogs revolves around the Arteagas, an affluent family from Mexico City who must flee the country after their patriarch is kidnapped. But their saga is told through short stories–each one from the perspective of a different member of the family, or some of the housekeepers who worked for them back in Mexico, as they face exile.
It’s not a novel then.
That’s a bummer, man. We’ll keep this short, then. Haha.
Fine by me.
