Cuentos hiperbreves y llenos de humor de un interesante autor húngaro. ( )
  cuentosalgernon | Sep 19, 2013 |
One minute stories is a collection of very short stories written between 1958 and 1979.

They are hilarious, witty, ironic, sarcastic and ... short.

The first story is titled "User instructions" and it says that "if you don't understand a story, read it again. If you still don't understand it, it is the story's fault."

I did not get them all, but the not-so-good ones were just a minute's read, so one does not need to feel bad about the time spent on them. On the other hand, a few of them were very good: funny, touching, thought provoking, and in some cases even mind blowing.
