South Exit. By Carlos Bortoni. Translated from the Spanish by Toshiya Kamei. ISBN 978-1090965127. $17.95

South Exit is a collection of urban parables featuring the lonely struggles of marginalized characters, unseen and unloved, who watch and negotiate space from the edges, while witnessing (and avoiding) the habitual cruelties and comforts of the normative majority. There is a refreshing honesty to this work, blending humor, irony, tenderness and grit along a horizontal map of daily survival. Carlos Bortoni’s signature style is hypnotic—skillfully rendered in Toshiya Kamei’s translation—at once poetic and mundane, achieving the literary magic of moving the margins to the center, of replacing the surfaces with the depths. Everything seems different here, yet all-too-painfully familiar.”
Chad Sweeney, author of Wolf’s Milk: The Lost Notebooks of Juan Sweeney
