In his introduction to the story, Dwyer Murphy writes, Halfon’s work thrives in those in-between, disoriented spaces. “Oh Ghetto My Love” might be a follow-up to his acclaimed novel, The Polish Boxer (the same seminal story, passed down from a grandfather, appears in both), or it might be something entirely new, where a new version of Halfon shows up in Łódź wearing a pink jacket, carrying a photograph, in need of a cigarette.

I haven’t thought to ask Halfon how much of this story is true, or where to place it among his other novels and stories. That would, I suspect, spoil something. And probably he’d refuse to answer. Halfon wants us there with him–desubicado–a little ill at ease, never sure of where we are or where we’re headed.About the Author: Eduardo Halfon was born in Guatemala City, moved to the United States at the age of ten, went to school in South Florida, studied Industrial Engineering at North Carolina State University, and then returned to Guatemala to teach literature for eight years at Universidad Francisco Marroquín.
