Este es un conjunto de relatos unidos por constantes como la soledad, el absurdo, o el humor frio. Sus personajes suelen provocar extranas simpatias: o inspiran piedad, o despiertan odios y sonrisas nerviosas. Se trata de seres solitarios que sobreviven a pesar de ellos mismos, hombres incapaces de obtener exito en ninguna empresa y que aguardan a ser consumidos por un mundo que no comprenden; duenos unos de un hedonismo suicida o sumidos, otros, en una pesimista resignacion, se muestran aqui de una manera franca, sin retorica ni ambiguedades, aunque siempre descritos con humor letal. Para el escritor mexicano Guillermo Fadanelli el relato debe ser un dibujo de trazos fuertes y arriesgados, consecuencia de una mirada paciente y, solo en apariencia, distante: los personajes de Comprare un rifle estan definidos mas por sus actos que por su pensamiento, y estos actos, a su vez, son mas consecuencia de sus miedos que de sus certezas. / This is a collection of short stories brought together by shared themes such as loneliness, the absurd or cold humour. The characters within them tend to provoke strange sympathies, inspire piety, or awaken hatred and nervous smiles. This is about lonely beings who survive despite of themselves, men incapable of success in any line of work and who wait to be consumed by a world they do not understand. Some are masters of suicidal hedonism, others are resigned to pessimism; here they are shown frankly, without rhetoric and without ambiguity, but always delivered with lethal humour.
