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.

He has given her no warning; she is too surprized to resist the intruder who thrusts himself upon her. When he takes her in his arms, her limbs crumple like a marionette's. Words heavy as clubs thud into the delicate whorl of her ear. ' she says, struggling. ' But nothing will stop him. He carries her to the bedroom, brushes off the absurd slippers, kisses her feet, astonished by the feeling she evokes.

He would even have found his own catalogue leader, Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (c. 1380S-90S), in the Classics section. Some physical aspects of the books on display would strike him as nifty improvements on the fifteenth-century commodity: dustjackets, indexes, covers (he, of course, sold his wares from his Westminster stall in quires), coated paper, italic print, perfect binding - all worth sticking in the boot of Mr Wells's wonderful machine for the trip back. But despite all these peripheral improvements to the book as a book, Master Caxton, or his apprentices, Wynkyn de Worde and Richard Pynson, could, with their fifteenth-century technology, mock up the same product that the big W is currently pushing on its '3 for 2' tables.
