Summary
"Monterroso's microcuentos defy social and literary categories in this collection of brilliant satires that combine the first English-language versions of Obras completas y otros cuentos (1959) and Movimiento perpetuo (1972). Corral's 'Before and After Augusto Monterroso' and Grossman's competent translations make this volume an excellent introduction to one of Latin America's greatest living writers. Highly recommended for classroom and general use"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
