Juan Castillo’s Other Name – Short But Odd 5 Minute Fiction

Juan Castillo’s Other Name is a short story by Graeme Smith. It’s a tale of neurosis and delusion caused by a troubled childhood, an obsession with breakfast, and certain children’s books. Juan Castillo, the narrator, has checked himself into some kind of facility to escape from the world and “set the record straight” about disturbing events from his past. What we – and possibly he – discovers is that he can’t escape and that the fiction of the past continues to dictate present and future actions.
