In this novel 3 men get up close and personal with a pair of lions, finding the king of beasts to possess certain unnerving and quasi-mystical qualities that connote its majesty, its indomitable spirit. This mysterious, episodic marvel of a book will delight anyone who wishes that Borges was still alive and writing.
Ignacio Padilla declared this mischievous little novel to be "the best Mexican literary work I have read in recent years . . . it] heralds a pen capable of that rarest of privileges in our letters: attaining the comic and profoundly human through a perfect simplicity.
