Publisher's Summary

The well-meaning protagonists of Brief Encounters with Che Guevara are caught - to both disastrous and hilarious effect - in the maelstrom of political and social upheaval surrounding them. Ben Fountain's prize-winning debut speaks to the intimate connection between the foreign, the familiar, and the inescapably human.

too short

(why can't I give 4.5?)
Every one of these stories could be an above average movie. The last story and the title of the book is in my opinion, the weakest of all. The narrator feels like he is hammering out the words, which is a shame as it borders on lovecraft genius.

The Sadness of Time

The tale of our troubled times, scrabbling for peace and comfort in a diorama if greed and violence. Brilliant tales, and where will our hero appear?
