No Ficción
Alberto Fuguet

NOVEL | 2015 | 174 pages

Two men in their forties get together in a small apartment on a hot afternoon in order to talk and, at last, set the record straight. It would be easy to assume that they were once together yet perhaps they never were because behind this ambiguous relationship of almost ten years, something is missing—oddly so. And it’s precisely what’s missing that keeps the conversation going during a long Santiago night drinking whiskey.

Twenty-five years after a literary début that catapulted him into international fame, Alberto Fuguet confirms his place as one of the most relevant Latin American authors of this time. Showcasing his masterful command of dialogue and his ability to transcend genres, Fuguet has written a ground-breaking novel—both in form and content—that brilliantly weaves moments of tension and release, what is said and what is withheld, the high definition contrasts between these two men who oscillate, time and time again, between insolent humor, poignant hatred, intimate attacks and the fear of desire.

Fuguet is the most damn serious Chilean author today, he who, with 174 pages and a radiant ending, has most deeply penetrated the oral tissues of that disabled and demented community that constitutes the human fact.
