By Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares
Un poco a l. a. manera de Carlyle, cuyo ‘Sartor Resartus’ (‘Sastre zurcido’) expone l. a. doctrina de un filósofo imaginario y l. a. ilustra con ejemplos apócrifos, H. Bustos Domecq dedica este volumen a los angeles discusión imparcial de literatos, de escultores, de arquitectos, de gastrónomos y de pintores que, por el momento, no existen, pero que son peligrosamente posibles, dadas las propensiones de los angeles época. El tono es humorístico, según lo impone todo examen severo de las manifestaciones más novedosas del arte y de las letras durante los últimos sesenta años. Veinte crónicas, casi todas de índole narrativa, integran este libro amenísimo, que satiriza lo universalmente consagrado, respetado, adulado y temido: es decir, lo moderno. En el desorientado siglo que corre, los angeles ignorancia y l. a. inepcia son infatigablemente inventivas; nos consta que H. Bustos Domecq ha debido espolear a su Pegaso para que los angeles realidad no lo deje atrás. Según lo señala el prólogo que avalora Gervasio Montenegro, estas impares ‘Crónicas’ constituyen el vademécum crucial para el curioso que quiera echar una ojeada sobre el conjunto panorámico de l. a. estética en boga. Su redacción jocosa, apunta agudamente «ex cathedra» el profesor adjunto Longino, no excluye el pensamiento serio. Encarnados en l. a. figura de un «egoísta, tránsfuga, mentiroso, fanfarrón y casanova barato», según los angeles descripción de sus ilustres padres, Borges y Bioy Casares crean en estas páginas un fascinante juego de ficciones y espejos que lleva los angeles parodia hasta sus últimas consecuencias.

We found Henry at home - hard at work entertaining the girls to tea and madeira cake. He was surrounded by a sea of packages and bundles, most of which I suspect he had put there himself as necessities for the trip. Widget said we’d never be able to carry all that lot on our backs and Henry said we certainly would. Katrina said it depended what you meant by ‘carry’. In the sense that it could all be piled on to us somehow to score an entry in the Guinness Book of Records she couldn’t deny that it might be technically possible.
At this point Penny came in from the next room where she had been ironing Fraser’s shirts. She said that hearing our bickering had made her wonder whether she had done the right thing. She said that she had met the De Veres in the village during the afternoon, the new people who have taken over the Hall. They told her they would like to meet us, and could we pick a suitable evening to go round. They weren’t thinking of anything elaborate, just champagne cocktails and some light supper, and they wondered whether Fraser and Penny could come, and that handsome friend of Fraser’s with the brown hair (Henry identified this as himself), and also that man who seemed to be at a loose end all the time.
