This collection of short stories reflects the Latin American experience in the United States and reveals the complex reality of a country that, in its own way, has become Latin American. These are works by a group of young writers who entered the literary world during the 90s with a style described as serious, yet irreverent. Edited by Edmundo Paz Soldan and Alberto Fuguet, it explores the space occupied by the United States within the Latin American culture."
