Delicioso libro de Augusto Monterroso. Con calidad variable, contiene algunas fábulas y cuentos muy divertidos, la mayoría en torno a los mitos del mundo de los escritores y los que dicen que lo son. Entre otros cuentos de los que te llegan, incluye el del dinosaurio.... Por destacar una cita: "Poeta, no regales tu libro. Quémalo tu mismo".

Monterroso, un maestro de la palabra justa y aguda. Hilarante.
Los cuentos de Monterroso desgarran la sociedad y las actitudes, para presentarlas sin regodeos ni distracciones. Puede ser una fábula, o un recuento de vida en la escala de las personas y sus angustias. Siempre habrá una sorpresa a la vuelta de la esquina o al regreso de los sueños.

Spanish: Estes cuentos me decepcionaron. Me gustó "El dinosaurio", pero no las otras historias. No sé por qué.

English: These stories disappointed me. I liked "El dinosaurio", but not the other stories. I don't know why.

Augusto Monterroso (1921-2003) es la máxima figura hispánica del género más breve de la literatura, el microrrelato, y una de las personalidades más entrañables, no sólo por su modestia y sencillez, sino también por su excepcional inteligencia y su exquisita ironía.
