Lo leí en el colegio, en la clase de Lengua, porque nuestra profesora estaba embarazada. A cambio de ella, vino una nueva suplente, profesora de universidad, que nos cambió los libros que debíamos leer (en la línea de Decir Amigo) por otros: Conan Doyle, cuentos de Cortázar, etc. El primero fue este de Roa Bastos, y me abrió la cabeza.
Roa Bastos is one of the most underrated great Latin American writers. Some of the short stories in this books are some of the best of any writer or any kind I have read in my life. Special mention should go for 'El Baldio', 'Encuentro con el Traidor', 'Kurupi' among others. There are only a couple of the post-modernist variety that I didn't enjoy. Highly recommended.

Tem um certo valor pelo momento comprado, talvez eu esteja supervalorizando. Gostei da forma que ele surpreende, já que boa parte das histórias levam para um caminho óbvio e normalmente mudam, mesmo sem guinadas cheias de peripécias.
