Summary: This essay discusses an approach to four short stories set in four Latin American cities in the present day. Through stories told of the experiences of the protagonists, it is possible to understand the daily lives of the population of these cities, under the influence of phenomena originating from the processes of globalization which have been incorporated into these societies, their own uses and values as globalized cultures.
