CONFABULARIO JUAN JOSE ARREOLA PDF

Our Assessment: B : an interesting variety of small pieces, many of which are very worthwhile. The complete review 's Review :. This book, a translation of Confabulario Total , itself a collection of twenty years worth of Arreola's work, includes almost all of the material in the Spanish original. The first section is a Bestiary of some two dozen animals, each written about in no more than three or four paragraphs. Much of Arreola's best work is here: with a few strokes he evocatively paints these small, unexpected portraits.
