Críticas:


"Three fast-moving, mysteriously compelling tales... [that have] the dream quality of Kafka." -New Yorker


"A series of misadventures, at once hilarious and menacing." -Village Voice


"Tawada's slender accounts of alienation achieve a remarkable potency. Each one sustains a masterly balance between the tenuous but meaningful connections of dreams and the direct, earthy storytelling of fold tales." -The New York Times


"A surrealist with a funky, abrasive sense of humor." -Kirkus Reviews


"A refreshing appetite for mischief." -Los Angeles Times


"Funny and audacious." -Booklist


"As in a novel by Jules Verne, fantastic new spaces keep opening up before your inner eye." ---WimWenders

Reseña del editor:

The Bridegroom Was a Dog is perhaps the Japanese-German writer Yoko Tawada’s most famous story. Its initial publication in 1998 garnered admiration from The New Yorker, who praised it as, “fast-moving, mysteriously compelling tale that has the dream quality of Kafka.”The Bridegroom Was a Dog begins with a schoolteacher telling a fable to her students. In the fable, a princess promises her hand in marriage to a dog that has licked her bottom clean. The story takes an even stranger twist when that very dog appears to the schoolteacher in real life as a dog-like man. They develop a very sexual, romantic courtship with many allegorical overtones — much to the chagrin of her friends.
