9788420422893: La Vaca (Spanish Edition)

Monterroso converts any memory into a theme for a story. In "La vaca", the author filters daily experience until he obtains its essence. Through his talent for transforming life into a fable, he bestows on every creation the breath of simplicity with merciless and condescending humor, Once again and with sharp precision, Augusto Monterroso throws the darts of his wisdom in these twenty essays.

Blurb in Spanish:
La ironía de Monterroso discurre sobre la literatura: la vaca de Maiakovski, los miedos idiomáticos de Virginia Woolf, los terrores literarios de Raymond Carver, los errores de apreciación de Julian Barnes, la pasión de Pablo Neruda por la gesta de Alonso Ercilla, los otros Aleph que no son de Jorge Luis Borges, la literatura fantástica de Juan Rulfo, la imposición de manos de Juan Carlos Onetti, la vitalidad de Erasmo, la presencia de Lya Kostakovski y Luis Cardoza y Aragón, el humor de León Tolstoi...

Símbolo y tema de perpetuas reescrituras, "La vaca" deambula en los ensayos de Augusto Monterroso ostentando su paradójica e inagotable novedad.
