Literature. In its various forms. One's own literature, and that of others, which also becomes one's own. Reading, writing, re-reading, creating, reviewing, living to tell, telling as a way of life, as a way of being with others and a way of being alone and not being alone, to connect and traffic emotions, a way of traveling through places where one has never been even though some seem more real than real places... This is what author/filmmaker Alberto Fuguet sets forth in Transitos, a book filled with vehemence and passion and confessions, an underground autobiography, where through features, essays, non-fiction stories and true fictions and loose paragraphs that are like prose haikus, Alberto Fuguet reviews and intrudes in on the work of writers such as Richard Ford, J. D. Salinger, José Donoso , Marcela Paz, Mario Vargas Llosa, Roberto Bolaño or Gustavo Escanlar, among others, as well as providing thoughtful reflections on his own work, which at this point is a distinctive brand in the literary landscape of Latin America.
