I continue to enjoy Monterroso thoroughly. It may be that I am forgetting something, or it may be that there are several stories new to me in this edition. Among the good new ones I would list The Rabbit and the Lion (15), Faith and Mountains (23), Penelope's Cloth, Or Who Is Deceiving Whom (25), and The Other Six (45). Old friends still as biting in their satire are The Monkey Who Wanted to Be a Satirist (17), The Owl Who Wanted to Save Humankind (32), and David's Sling (71). For quick fun, try The Black Sheep (27), The Lightning That Struck in the Same Place Twice (41), The Frog Who Wanted to Be an Authentic Frog (60), The Ass and the Flute (67), and The Fable-Writer and His Critics (84). I think that this is now the best English-language edition of Monterroso.
