He is surely among the very greatest readers of books and lovers of world literatureBy Glenn RussellAlberto Manguel - Argentine-Canadian anthologist, translator, essayist, novelist and editor. He is surely among the very greatest readers of books and lovers of world literature. Black Water collects 72 tales of the fantastic by such authors as Jean Cocteau, Marguerite Yourcenar, Herman Hesse, Italo Calvino, Vladimir Nabokov, H.G.Wells, Franz Kafka and Ursula K. LeGuin. There is one story I particularly enjoy from a less well known author from Argentina, Manuel Mujica Linez, and it is this story I have made the focus of my review. Hope you enjoy and take the opportunity to explore this outstanding collection on your own.IMPORTANCE by Manuel Mujica LinezGreat Lady: Mrs. Hermosilla del Fresno, widow, lady of very great importance, lives in her huge mansion with her many servants and presides over all the citys important charities and parties. Great writers such as de Maupassant and Balzac have always understood one of the perfect ingredients for a good short story is a character puffed up by all their wealth and social standing. Manuel Mujica Linez was familiar with the precariousness of family wealth: born into a distinguished and wealthy lineage of Buenos Aries nobility, by the time the family line reached his parents and Manuel, the vast majority of wealth vanished. Manuel had to earn a living as a literary critic and art critic for the citys leading newspaper.Chink in the Armor: Unfortunately, there is one small fact diminishing the Seoras splendid importance: her family background is somewhat less than splendid. Thats right, sad but true, she comes from a dubious bloodline. Also unfortunate for Seora, certain obscure relatives occasionally have the temerity to pop up at the wrong time forcing Seora to cloak their kinship with a wry smile and arched glance while her vanity spits and snarls inside her like a crouching tiger. Ah, a second valuable ingredient for a good short story featuring a puffed up character: a hidden flaw.Piety Counts: Seora believes in God as well as in heaven
