A bunch of short snippets in the vein of Borges' 'Imaginary beings'--or sometimes even a little Calvino-ish. Most of these light satires center around animals of one sort or another. Anyway at face value they can easily be taken as harmless but Monterroso has a way of subtly inserting social comment to give it that little extra punch. Not an easy book to find out there but you can definitely do a lot worse. ( )
