Casares reveals a very subtle sense of humor in his stories that at times has me laughing and smiling. I can see why he was able to co-write with Borges but I can't see why his work isn't better known among English speaking people.

Interestingly crafted short stories that left me wondering why they were written. This is most likely due to my ignorance, but I didn't feel any connection with the stories or characters.I don't want to think of these stories in any relation to Borges, but it's nearly impossible to not compare them, given that the author is rarely ever mentioned except in relation to Borges.I think that I would only ever re-read or recommend one story from this collection: The Hero Of Women.

This author is genius.
