Formas breves es una recopilación de textos misceláneos que el propio
autor describe como «páginas perdidas en el diario de un escritor». En
ellas reflexiona sobre los angeles literatura, desde l. a. ficción hasta el
pensamiento crítico; desde el diálogo con los autores que se han
convertido en los angeles estela de su obra e imaginario -Arlt, Macedonio,
Borges, Gombrowicz, Kafka, Chéjov, Joyce y Hemingway, entre otros- hasta
los temas más abstractos, como l. a. naturaleza del relato corto o el punto
de inflexión entre realidad y ficción. Este es un homenaje a la
literatura misma; un lugar donde se pone en juego su doble filo: una
ficción que se lee como una verdad apócrifa y un realismo que aparece
como un artificio veraz.
