Item description for Sobredosis / Overdose (Spanish Edition) by Alberto Fuguet...
A collection of short stories that jolted Chilean literature from a long siesta and gave literary critics a headache. Too many bad words and too much marihuana for the youth of brand new, neo-liberal Chile. The appearance of this book was like the arrival of television: after its release, literature in this country was never the same. Perhaps for that reason, after surpassing its twentieth edition, it is still captivating new readers. But looking beyond this dazzling style and controversial opinions, these stories are plain good literature.

Chilean Culture 101 Sep 20, 2000
This collection of short stories is a fantastic exposition of some of the shadier and more interesting aspects of Chilean culture. The thick regional slang and historical references keep the reader entertained and educated all at once.
