This is a translation from Spanish to English of the short story “Una influencia criminal” [A Criminal Influence] by Santiago Roncagliolo, part of a collection of short stories titled Crecer es un oficio triste [Growing Up is Sad Business], also by Roncagliolo. A description and analysis of concurrent literary movements and themes accompanies the translation, placing “Una influencia criminal” into a literary context with the multinational movements known as McOndo and Generation X. Globalization can be considered to affect the movement and sharing of culture as an expansion of the economic dispersion of goods across the world, and so modern youth literature has adapted to take on more urban, international themes. McOndo and Generation X are both examples of these movements that have spread through several countries and share many common themes.
