Item description for Casi Un Objeto/Almost an Object by Jose Saramago...

One by one, each short story leaves a deep impression in the reader's memory and sensibility. In "Silla", an insect eats away Salazar's chair until he falls from his dictatorship. "Embargo" tells the tale of a man worried for his automobile, when all gasoline is disappearing and death hovers over both. In "Reflujo", one cemetery is absorbing all the other ones. In "Cosas", the author imagines a city under a dictatorship. A fantastic being, half man and half horse, has been hiding for centuries in the shadow of "Centauro". Plus, "Desquite" is a parable in which a boy dives into a river knowing that on the other side awaits a naked girl. Description in Spanish: Saramago nos ofrece en este libro una coleccin de cuentos. En Silla, una carcoma va royendo el asiento de Salazar hasta que cae la dictadura. Embargo nos cuenta la ocupacin de un hombre por su automvil, mientras la gasolina se acaba y la muerte se cierne sobre ambos. En Reflujo, un nico cementerio va absorbiendo todos los dems. En Cosas el autor imagina una ciudad sometida a una dictadura absoluta. Un ltimo ser fantstico, mitad hombre y mitad caballo, se esconde en las sombras de Centauro. Y en Desquite un muchacho se lanza a un ro sabiendo que en la otra orilla lo espera una chica desnuda.
