Agudelo’s books have always been concerned with the relationship between worker and consumer, whether in the kitchens or in the neighborhood, but in The Bosses, his spectacular third outing, Agudelo’s sharp focus finally lands on the seen and unseen authority figures who dictate the boundaries of our lives, contemplating power structures from the current managerial culture to a historical exploration of the role that authority plays in our lives.
