Item description for La oveja negra y demás fábulas (Punto de Lectura) by Augusto Monterroso...

Imagine Alice having tea with Borge's fantastic bestiary. Imagine Jonathan Swift and James Thurber exchanging notes. What if a frog from Caravelas County had really read Mark Twain? Augusto Monterroso has achieved this and more with "La oveja negra y dems fbulas".

Blurb in Spanish:
Sucintas, intensas, bellas, reveladoras, deslumbrantes, estas fbulas son una excelentsima muestra del mejor talento de uno de los grandes maestros del relato corto. Es como si cada historia estuviera contada en un gesto. No hay exceso ni demasa. Hay pulso y sobre todo la fuerza de una creacin que irrumpe y transforma.

Reviews - What do customers think about La oveja negra y demás fábulas (Punto de Lectura)?

Bravo  Dec 22, 2000
Si a Monterroso no le dan el nobel por lo menos publiquenle su trabajo en un libro de primaria de su pais.

Monterroso es un mago de la satira. Sus cuentos tienen veneno y de pronto hasta alguna que otra moraleja. La Oveja Negra es una de las historias mas repetidas en la historia Latinoamericana y Monterroso la redacta con un cuento "inofensivo"

Es tan dificil describir este monstruo de la literatura que solo recomendare comprar el libro...

The most sarcastic social criticsism  Apr 23, 2000
Monterroso uses simple fables, that superficially are very funny, but once you associate each one to human society, you'll find that the author is able to slap us in the face, in his own unique way. I would describe his writing as one of the most elegant. Read this book, if you want to think about humanity path, while having a good laugh too.
