"This small volume of extremely short fables -- many only a page or a few paragraphs in length -- is a virtuoso display of writing.... Clever, amusing, and thoughtful, with nary a wasted word, These small pieces are weightier than many a full-sized novel.... Because of the precision of the texts quite a bit gets lost in translation. Nevertheless, even in English it is a marvelous read."
