Mark I found Miguel Street to be a simple, yet rewarding, mosaic (a very familiar sight in Latin America). I found myself nostalgic for a place I've never visited, confused by idiosyncrasies I couldn't relate to, and sometimes led astray by the subtle disparities expressed through the personal growth of the anonymous narrator.

I was initially lured into a complacent reading of this novel by its simple approach, in terms of language and structure, to complex issues such as gender relations and a search for identity.
