    The only thing a person of my age can do is fall in love secretly, silently, likeI had done with Mariana Fall in love knowing that all is lost and there is no hope.

    A tale of a middle class family in Mexico City as seen through the eyes of the youngest kid, there s mystery, romance, and self discovery.

    A fast read and a very silky short novel Set in Mexico City during the presidency of Miguel Alem n 1946 1952 it is a mixture of social critique to the double moral of those times and also a nostalgic remembrance of the past The plot is very simple and essentially revolves around the love story of a kid who lives in a prudish family Yet, it is mostly a device to show social injustice and the self serving rationalizations of the upper classes The author is well known mostly for his poems and A fast read and a very silky short novel Set in Mexico City during the presidency of Miguel Alem n 1946 1952 it is a mixture of social critique to the double moral of those times and also a nostalgic remembrance of the past The plot is very simple and essentially revolves around the love story of a kid who lives in a prudish family Yet, it is mostly a device to show social injustice and the self serving rationalizations of the upper classes The author is well known mostly for his poems and his command for rhythm is clearly put on display here, even when he gets to list places or brands the cadence is just the right one to produce a list that can be read with prosody The other trademark element of this narrative are the witty remarks, one can trace some of the contemporary writers style like Juan Villoro to this kind of narrative.Overall, a brisk read that will last an hour at most It is entertaining, has a good cadence and some air of nostalgia that makes it standout It s main problem is that even when the final outcome is shown not much narrative power is reached Since this book followsthe format of a short novel than that of a short story that isn t a deal breaker Still I would had liked a bitof tension to be delivered For the english edition the publisher had the right idea of combining this short novel with a few additional short stories to keep the reader busy forthan half an hour.3.5 5 if translated properly, the english edition is probably a 4 stars book

    I m over 40 Think it s somehow my parents lives reflected as they grew in D.F Now I see the inspiration to a nice Cafe Tacuba song And inspiration to a not as good movie as the book, with actors I grew with Enjoyed it.

    I read this book for my Spanish class in Puebla, Mexico and loved it In few words Jose Pacheco captures the invasion of the U.S in words, culture, and products during the post WW2 period in the colonia Roma in Mexico City The changes in the 50s led to backlash and prejudice against immigrants who settled there The battles in the desert reflects the playground battles the boys fought during recess, especially judios contra arabes This reflected the wars in the Middle East at this time.It I read this book for my Spanish class in Puebla, Mexico and loved it In few words Jose Pacheco captures the invasion of the U.S in words, culture, and products during the post WW2 period in the colonia Roma in Mexico City The changes in the 50s led to backlash and prejudice against immigrants who settled there The battles in the desert reflects the playground battles the boys fought during recess, especially judios contra arabes This reflected the wars in the Middle East at this time.It is also a love story of a young boy who has a crush on Mariana, the mother of his best friend She is everything his mother is not loving, tender, young, beautiful, interested in her son and his kids She also fed them American food instead of the chicharon in salsa verde and other traditional Mexican dishes of his mother She was exotic and alluring He gets in big trouble to visit her during school hours and ends up both confessing to a priest and talking with two psychiatrists The short novel is both humorous and sad The author only hints at an ending, leaving the book quite open ended The reader must decide the real conclusion
