EACH OF EDGARDO Cozarinsky’s short stories seems to hold enough plot and hidden secrets for a whole novel or film-script. His little dramas of revenge or regret are built around the theme of exile, and involve the investigation of past events – half-remembered, revealed by evidence left hidden between the leaves of a book, found in an archive, or recounted in tales passed down through successive generations of a family.
