Quesadillas

Villalobos mines Mexico for its everyday surrealism, even as he mocks how outsiders exoticize his country.

Quesadillas is pure fantastical rapture, a kaleidoscopic story about anger and adolescence.

The comedy in “Quesadillas” has a moral dimension. Conquered people, Saul Bellow told us, tend to be witty.
