Editorial Reviews

This volume brings together all the published short stories of Mexican author Agustin, from 1968's "Inventando que sueno" ("Pretending That I'm Dreaming") to last year's "Los ojos de los demas" ("Everyone Else's Eyes"). Although written over several decades, the stories share a postmodern style and sensibility. Some, like "Cual es la onda" ("What's the Deal"), are experimental; they blend Americanisms with Mexican slang, use unconventional spacing and symbols; and allude frequently to Cuban writer Guillermo Cabrera Infante, German playwright Bertolt Brecht, and the 1960s rock band The Doors. Others, such as "(Ya te paralizaste?" ("Did You Paralyze Yourself Yet?"), about a man who unintentionally gets caught in the violence of a political demonstration and finds himself in a role he never anticipated, follow a more traditional format. The stories vary in length from a couple of pages to several dozen, and make frequent references to songs, singers, and popular culture-hardly surprising, as Agustin is known in Mexico as a rock 'n' roll historian. The book will attract students of postmodern literature and readers interested in the short story genre and popular culture. Recommended for academic libraries and bookstores that stock multicultural selections.
