Are you willing to entertain a different vision of the afterlife? Landry Sinclair has a story to tell—listen carefully. I played the professional career woman. Beneath the façade, I was lonely and ashamed.
My plans for upward mobility were squashed when I fell into the hands of a ruth serial killer.
I became entangled in his rich web of heinous acts. After he slipped a date-rape drug in my drink, then brutally tortured me, I awakened to an inescapable nightmarish realm on the wrong side of the mirror. And I was not alone. Will I be forced to idle here for an eternity, peering through the mirror into my former world, helply watching as a homicidal monster butchers woman after woman? We watch life through windows, mirrors, and doors—pay attention. I know because I sing the opus of the dead.

Una abuela que emigró de Kiev; un abuelo vegetariano, ateo y socialista; un padre que murió joven; una madre que remarca los sacrificios de su vida. En el centro de la escena, una niña que observa y escucha su entorno con agudeza y picardía. Fuera del círculo familiar, las amigas de la cuadra, la escuela, el almacén, el conservatorio de música, la iglesia, y el telón de fondo de los gobiernos conservadores y el ascenso de Perón. Libro sobre los inicios y a la vez inicio en sí mismo, Músicos y relojeros inauguró la obra de Alicia Steimberg en 1971 y se ha conv ertido en una fresca y ya clásica novela de la literatura argentina, que retrata con irreverencia y humor la infancia y la vida fam iliar. La crítica ha dicho... « "Un agudo relato parcialmente autobiográfico sobre la niñez de una chica judía en la Argentina de la década de 1940. Esta novela -una joya- lleva la marca de la voz distintiva de Steimberg, ingeniosamente descarada, irónica pero cálida, precoz y a la vez con conocimiento de mundo.» Publisher's Weekly
