Alberto Fuguet was born in Santiago, Chile, but moved to Encino, California, at the age of three months; he stayed in the US until he was eleven. Back in Chile, he learned Spanish and eventually studied journalism. He has three books translated into English: Bad Vibes, The Movies of My Life, and Shorts. He is also the author of Missing (an investigation), a nonfiction bilingual work, and the anthology McOndo (see WLT, July 2010, 15–18). He has also directed five movies and “directed and edited” Andrés Caicedo’s posthumous autobiographical work, Mi cuerpo es una celda.
