Suma de Letras, Nov 1, 2003 - Fiction - 120 pages
2 Reviews
A collection of short stories that jolted Chilean literature from a long sieta and gave literary critics a headache. Too many bad words and too much marihuana for the youth of brand-new neoliberal Chile. But looking beyond his dazzling style and controversial opinions, these stories are plain good literature.

No English edition exists--Great collection of shorts in Spanish. Good for practicing monologues/becoming more fluent in Spanish, but it will probably not give you a Chilean accent Read full review
