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.

From the instigator of Chile's "mala onda" literary movement come 4 short stories almost approaching novella length. As de la Parra wrote, "You have to read it, to see what's going on. Regardless of whether or not you like it, you should read it.
The last two are narrated in first person, but with a difference. It's deceivingly gossip-y at first, and you doubt that there's anything substantial--the first two stories were open-ended. But events turn in the last two pages, and you find that it was much more political than it appeared to be, after all. One other thing, lest you think that the first two dealing with youth make this collection suitable for teens: the last one's "rated R", maybe "X", depending on who you are.
