In "El vértigo horizontal. Una ciudad", Juan Villoro explores Mexico City, unfolding it like a infinite puzzle: the road shortcuts, national heroes, government, countless crowds, intake of chili, ancestral temples, and so much more. He also narrates certain autobiographical passages, such as memories with his grandmother or his recollection of a colony of abandoned houses where he grew up. Through his own experience and through researching the realities of others, Villoro composes a great fresco of the endearing and eternal chaos that makes up the great capital of Mexico.
