Hard Story

Hard Story doesn’t start at the beginning of the story in order to show how brutal the world that lies in store is. It doesn’t close at the ending in order to spare its reader the pain that waits there. As the book asserts, the story doesn’t have a happy ending, but there is a point or two of cessation where we can leave our protagonists with a measure of peace in spite of what they deserve or haven’t earned.

A murderous pimp and a vulnerable hooker fall in love in a concisely brutal tale of obsession and second chances. Horacio Altuna writes this uncompromisingly wonderful piece of nastiness, and Jorge Gonzalez brings it all to life with art that both caricatures and depicts reality.
