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. Such bestiaries seem to be a very Latin American thing, but Arreola's spin on the animals is distinctive and very worthwhile. The stories in the two other sections are slightly longer, though they are still almost all very much to the point.
They are unusual stories, told from odd angles, offering unexpected insight. Arreola keeps us on his toes. They are mysterious little pieces, and we found a number of them only half-satisfying. There is something to be said for that, but it should be noted. Arreola writes well and carefully, and it is fascinating prose -- and the shortness of the pieces makes it an ideal book to dip into at intervals.
Given that the pieces were written over a period of twenty years, that is probably the way to go about it. Recommended, though not for those who want their prose meaty and in large chunks. Delicate, smart, and elegant these are just a bit short of being superior fiction.
