      This book is set in an apartment building in Mexico City in which a group of elderly retirees live. The residents of the building engage in various activities together in order to fend off boredom, including the most popular activity which is the daily gathering and discussion at the literary salon. Francesca, the building president and leader, is also the head of this salon. As each new member moves into the building, he or she is given a warm welcome and an invitation to the salon. The only pe [...]

      “Lo bello ha brotado en lo feo más bien que al revés”, T. W. Adorno, Teoría estética.Si a alguien no debemos perdernos de leer es a Juan Pablo Villalobos (Guadalajara, 1973). Sus dos primeras novelas “Fiesta en la madriguera” y “Si viviéramos en un lugar normal” le han granjeado la aclamación de la crítica, local e internacional; y han dejado en claro las preocupaciones literarias de este escritor.Un autor que vuelca, en la construcción firme de una voz, la narración de la n [...]

      I'll Sell You a Dog is Rosalind Harvy's 2016 translation of Juan Pablo Villalobos 2014 comic novel Te vendo un perro. It is one of the funniest novels that I've read in a long time. The well-crefted story is narrated by a former corner taco seller in Mexico City who tells us about his life and times and retirement. The book pokes fun at Mexico's contribution to culture in the 20th century. It also reveals in a hilarious manner what life is like in Districto Federal today without being too vulgar [...]

    4. Bixos Vilches on said:

      La novela destaca por su humor irreverente y una de esas prosas tan pulidas que demuestran el poder de la buena narrativa, esa que aparenta fácil confección pero denota un trabajo de artesanía con lujo de atención a los detalles. Amén de a historia (ya desenredada por , gracias), a ‘Te vendo un perro’ no le sobran ni le faltan palabras. Capítulos yendo, episodios de vida cotidiana viniendo, el libro podría tomarse como un homenaje a la creación artística y a quienes deciden consagra [...]

      Los tres más grandes escritores vivos que tenemos en México son tres: el todólogo Juan Villoro, el dios Fernando del Paso y Juan Pablo Villalobos. Me encantó que mencionara tanto al Palinuro de Mèxico y la Teoría Estética de Adorno, precisamente dos obras que también me tocaron el alma y quiero con mi vida y todas mis fuerzas. No hay una sola línea gratuita en el deleite de esta obra, una narrativa flexible, rabiosa, que juega a las luchitas con tus percepciones del sentido del humor y [...]

      I really like Villalobos’ writing style – deceptively simple that can be read purely at surface level as an engaging story but with a layer of social and political satire hidden underneath. It’s effortless. I’m not that familiar with Mexican history, so I’m certain I missed some things, but even so I got a lot from it. It’s funny and smart and deals with class, artistic snobbery, older age, and revolution. Down the Rabbit Hole is still my favourite of Villalobos’ novels, but this o [...]

    7. Jessica Lave on said:

      It was funny, but it's not really a story that "goes anywhere", and while the chapters are short, digestible, and only a couple pages at a time making it easy to read in short increments when you have time, I can't say it really drew me in or that I really cared that much about any of the characters. There were plenty of them that were funny or that I was curious about, but not curious enough that if I hadn't finished the book, I would have felt that disappointed that I never found out what beco [...]

      Una novela que empieza sobre alguien que niega estar escribiendo una novela para terminar escribiendo una novela siempre será agradable para mi. Te vendo un perro confirma que Villalobos está destinado a ser del os mejores escritores de este país.Inteligente, divertida, culta, el libro tiene todo para entretenernos y clavarnos en la historia del buen Teo. Definitivo, David Toscana y Juan Pablo Villalobos son mis escritores mexicanos contemporáneos favoritos.Larga vida a lo metareferencial!!

    9. Mario Schievenini on said:

      Este es un libro magnético. Desde el día en que lo comencé a leer quedé atrapado por la gran prosa de este autor del que pronto espero leer más. Excelente el humor que se utiliza y los personajes y temas tratados fueron totalmente de mi agrado. Sólo me queda decir que Teo es un gran protagonista, nunca se deja caer; ni cuando es amenazado debido a la carta que Francesca posee. Grande la Yuliet que le ayuda y guía mientras toman cervezas frías directo de las caguamas. Fresca lectura que s [...]

      Second recent book that takes place in some measure in a retirement home setting. I hope this is not a harbinger. I really like Villalobos and much enjoyed this story. This one has a somewhat Hellerish feel to it in its humor. I really enjoyed the main character, a retired failed artist turned taco seller who likes his beer and the pursuit (rebuffed) of the ladies. I liked his wit. Dog lovers and Mormon missionaries might pause before diving in.

    11. James on said:

      A genuine blast to read, didn't want to put it down. Nicely paced in bite-sized chunks, making it perfect to read on the go, very funny, and with a delightfully endearing old rogue at the heart of a warm, light-hearted story that reminds us no matter how old we get, there's still time to find out more about ourselves. Sensitive dog-lovers might want to give it a miss, mind

    12. Paul "Axl" Askew on said:

      This book has what is probably my favourite opening paragraph of any book I've ever read, and the quality continues throughout. Inventive and genuine-laugh-out-loud hilarious. Possibly my favourite book of this year so far. I cannot recommend it enough.

    13. Nancy on said:

      Oh man, talk about a disappointment. I'm normally a huge fan of satire and dark comedy, but I found hardly any of this actually funny - there were a few bits with the retirees that I liked, and Willem made me laugh a few times, but that's it - and most of the book just annoyed me.

      Maravilloso.Se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo que ame a los viejitos, sobretodo a los viejitos hijos de puta.

    15. José Miguel Tomasena on said:

      Me dio mucha risa. Aunque parece pura chacota, en el fondo se cuentan cosas serias.

    16. William on said:

      This one is five stars for readability and laugh-out-loud humor. The mad cap eccentric cast of characters (including a herd of cockroaches and some mangy dogs) is memorable. I have not read anything with this kind of humor in a long time. It's not the written equivalent of slapstick; rather, it is just skilfully clever and wry. It's been a long time since I read "Snow White" by Donald Barthelme, but that is the most parallel book I can think of.What keeps me from five stars is there seems to be [...]

    17. Sebastien on said:

      I first found out about this book when I came across several book reviews raving about it, talking about Villalobos' amazing writing. I have no idea what they were talking about.It's finally happened. I disagree with the gross majority of reviewers on a book.This book was supposed to be satirical - I guess. None of the characters managed to capture my attention for long, and an overwhelming feeling of "maybe I'm just not the target audience for this book" hung over me the whole time.Apart from [...]

      Contemporary FictionPlot: Retired taco street vendor who lives his life as a drunkard in a rent controlled apartment. I picked up this novel on a whim purely because of the cover and title. Even though I had no real expectations for the novel, I was pretty entertained. Discussion/SpoilersFor such a short read this novel had quite a bit of things going for it. The humor was unexpected for its plot, but was pretty great. The humor started the novel and then the themes took over the second half.

    19. TheReadingLawyer on said:

      A great read filled with Juan Pablo Villalobos' typical cast of characters that began with Down the Rabbit Hole and continued with Quesadillas. Teo lives in a retirement home and gets involved with CIA agents, an innocent Mormon missionary, a government agent and his literary salon neighbors in a way only a drunk ex-taco seller/disgruntled artist can. Absurdism, intrigue and reality blended perfectly.

    20. Benjamin Marr on said:

      Quotable, weird, and witty!I really liked this one. It had many funny scenes and I underlined quite a few sentences. It's hard to really say what it's about, but I enjoy this style of writing. There is a very off-putting part that keeps it from being a five star. And by off-putting, I almost stopped reading the book. I don't mind disturbing scenes, but this one made the main character somewhat unlikeable.I will definitely read more of the author's work!

    21. Julian on said:

      Por cuestiones de logística me tomé mucho tiempo para leer este libro. Al principio me resultó interesante y divertido, con multiples referencias a la cultura local con las que me identifiqué plenamente. Lo malo es que muchas otras referencias literarias y filosóficas, probablemente la mayoría, no las entendí y me resultaron distracciones. Pero es culpa mía y no del autor.

    22. Matt on said:

      A wonderful book the importance, merits and absurdities of art, literature & life; the daily grind of trying to get through each day haunted by memories of a wasted life; a hilariously grumpy misanthrope who only wants to drink beer and enjoy himself

    23. Adriana Rangel on said:

      Villalobos genial!Me encanta como escribe Villalobos! Ingenioso y divertido. Es la segunda novela que leo de él y ambas maravillosas! Recomendado para todo el que quiera aprender un poco de todo y divertirse a la vez. A propósito del terremoto del 85.

    24. Nose in a book (Kate) on said:

      I really liked this farce about an old man living in a block of flats reserved for retirees in Mexico City. Teo (not his real name) enjoys standing apart from the other residents, refusing to join their daily book group and accusing them of snobbery about his having been a taco seller all his life. He’s a drunk and also suffers from dementia, so it’s hard to know whether to believe him when he insists to his neighbour Francesca (not her real name) that he’s not writing a novel.He’s a jok [...]

    25. John M. on said:

      A great, fun read. Heartily recommend it for old farts (like me) who need some cheering up!

    26. Cat on said:

      Hands down one of the funniest, lightest, and most thoughtful books I've ever read. I came away feeling extraordinarily happy. All I can say is - read it.

    27. Susan on said:

      It is almost impossible to give away the plot to this postmodern period piece, but I will give it a try. The narrator’s neighbor “Francesca” has organized the tenants of their rent-controlled apartment building into a reading salon that is slogging their way through Proust. The narrator retaliates with Theodor Adorno’s “Aesthetic Theory.” The building is infiltrated by a young Mormon missionary who uses his Bible to squash cockroaches. The narrator make a brief foray into a work of J [...]
