Shorts by Alberto Fuguet

A review of Alberto Fuguet's Shorts.

With "Shorts," we come to see clearly that Fuguet is not a magic realist, a martyr from Márquez mythical village of Macondo, but rather a self-proclaimed founding member of the literary gang of McOndo, the universe of McDonald's, Macintoshes and condos. Mostly, though, readers will find that Fuguet is a gifted and playful young writer with the interest, skill and ambition to tackle the most difficult and rewarding human questions: Who am I? Where am I from? Do you love me? Why?
