Heres a book of tall-tall tales and short-short stories from a Latin American boom generation author large in literary stature but short in physical stature he was 53 Hondurass Augusto Monterroso. And before I say anything else, Complete Works and Other Stories contains perhaps the shortest story ever written.

That is why the world is perfect, but confused. Anyway, an American anthropologist travels to Central American and lives with a forest tribe. The demand for shrunken heads skyrockets but the tribe runs out. Once I started laughing, with every additional sentence, I laughed even harder.

Thanks for this one, Augusto! But, there is a serious problem: he loves handling money and controlling world financial markets. Ah, the soul of a businessman! What bores him to tears? Why, of course — classical music.

Ever sentence of his narrative builds and builds like a scherzo or toccata until his hatred of his daughter and her Bach, Mozart and Beethoven reaches both a touching and comical crescendo.

Bravo, maestro author. One supposes that poetry is written to enrich the spirit, that novels have been conceived, at the very least, to entertain us; and even, optimistically, that sociological solutions are a guide to solving something. Viewing the situation calmly, I realized that the first poetry was capable of impoverishing the richest spirit, the second novels of boring the most joyful, and the third sociology of confusing the most lucid.

This little tale is chock-full of bibliophilic gems. I have been little since I was little. I realized at the age of fifteen that I was growing into a very short man. In fact, I might be on the all-time short-list of reviewers noting the shortness of the short author under review. Corral writes a splendid 12 page introduction.
