A segment of a distinguished but small literary production, the story "Talpa" contains many elements that characterize the fiction of the Mexican writer Juan Rulfo. The stories of The Burning Plain fall into the category of regionalism, a prominent subgenre in twentieth-century Latin American literature. Behind the realistic, clearly Mexican topo-graphic, social, and cultural elements, however, a strong mythical reality imbues Rulfo's unique world, recalling William Faulkner 's phantasmagoric landscape. Rulfo, like many other Latin American writers of his time, greatly admired his American predecessor, but he went a step further to create the atemporal perspective of "wandering souls" whose raw emotions he conveys in strong visual images. He is successful in incorporating the afterlife with his characters' existence amidst an ethereal, yet strongly delineated, reality. By means of an interior monologue the protagonist of "Talpa" traces the progressive intensification of his guilt at his brother's death.

Панк кивнул и расхохотался.
Его голос гремел: - Три. Разница между 238 и 235 - три. Все подняли головы. - Три! - крикнула Сьюзан, перекрывая оглушающую какофонию сирен и чьих-то голосов. Она показала на экран.
