They went straight for our dike and wrecked it. It was a suicide mission.
Our old men were beating them, then the gangsters too. Arms flailed in the dim lights, Siglo XX struggling to break free. Then their whole neighborhood came and then ours and we fell into the thick fight of it, that inexplicable rush, that drug. We spilled onto the avenue and fought like men, side by side with our fathers and our brothers against their fathers and their brothers.
It was a carnival. My hands moved in closed fists and I was in awe of them.
I pounded a kid while Choco held him down. Renan swung his arms like helicopter blades, grinning the whole time, manic. We took some hits and gave some and swore inside we lived for this.

If Lucas could have seen us! He was able to convey the hostility of the whole event, the danger that accompanies it and the fear that surrounds it, but at the same time, he was able to convey how this is essential to their lives, how this is one of the driving forces of their existence, how this fight keeps them happy, how defending their fort is their top priority. Only a handful of writers can do this with a scene such as a riot. Only a few can draw out such elegance and such beauty and such importance in a very moment of utter unrest.

The opening pages of this story provide us with the humor the other stories lack. On the outside, we meet a normal Manhattan couple who have just moved in together. On the inside, we get a closer look at a young Indian girl who is hiding her relationship with her Peruvian boyfriend from her mother. His keen eye and amazing descriptions give the stories the kind of detail often lacking in debut fiction. He knows exactly how to maneuver his stories and the characters in them by giving them a solid finish.
