Each year, the entity known as UCSD transplants a set of bodies inhabited by the English language to the city of San Diego. Several of these bodies, approximately half a dozen, are moved around with the sole intention of enabling them to write. Besides dealing with their assigned names, the communities they have lived through, their acquired prejudices and the vices they have become used to, they also have to deal with writing, that strange act of imposing linguistic signs on a blank page. These bodies dedicate their time to writing under the methodology and supervision of an MFA Program that tries to push them towards experimental, or cross-genre writing. After being subsumed in this process during two to three years, these bodies are then released and leave San Diego. This book is a sample of the variety of writing generated by these bodies in the borderland between the entities called the USA and Mexico during 2012-2014. Amor Forense: Birds in Shorts City, published by Observatorio Editorial Tijuana and Pellejo, is a bilingual book, written in English and translated to Spanish by Aurelio Meza, Estela Mendoza, Gidi Loza, Jose Antonio Villaran, Julio Ortiz, Marco Antonio Huerta, Paola Capo-Garcia, Pepe Rojo y Patricia Torres Maciel."
