"Gathered under topical headings such as The Metro, Eating and Drinking, Corruption and Bureaucracy, Gallo has chosen some of the most engaging and lively chronicles of [Mexico City]." Jean Franco, author of "The Decline and Fall of the Lettered City: Latin America and the Cold War"
"In spite of its size, its proximity to the United States, and its extraordinarily vibrant cultural life, Mexico City remains almost invisible as a literary locale to North American readers who do not know Spanish. Ruben Gallo undertakes to fill this gap with his anthology of writings about the city, and he does so with great skill, insight, and verve." Maarten van Delden, author of "Carlos Fuentes, Mexico, and Modernity"
