The Argentinian Fernando Sorrentino unveils «not only the best, but the only possible method of defense against the scorpions». Originally included in his book En defensa propia (1982). Translated from Spanish by Clark M. Zlotchew. Also available in French.

«People are surprised, fearful and even indignant over the considerable proliferation of scorpions which threatens Buenos Aires, a city which until quite recently had been entirely free of this particular genus of arachnid...»

Method for Defense against Scorpions

I live constantly surrounded by scorpions, but big enough to avoid my smashing (besides, illegal). You are mastering absurdity!

Eduardo Alimonda
Method for Defense against Scorpions

(This opinion is about Fernando Sorrentino, not about a particular work.) Mr. Fernando Sorrentino is a master of words, ideas, grotesque and actuality.

Luljeta Buza
Method for Defense against Scorpions

(This opinion is about Fernando Sorrentino, not about a particular work.) Creo que estamos ante un escritor carismático, fresco, que posee sin duda una prosa atrapante y que transmite de una forma muy clara la esencia del pensamiento propio de mi cultura.

Una vez más, gracias Fernando Sorrentino por divertirnos y recordarnos quiénes somos!

Emiliano

Dra. Alicia Sarmiento
Method for Defense against Scorpions

(This opinion is about Fernando Sorrentino, not about a particular work.) Pondero su imaginación aliada al sentido del humor, la gracia casi grotesca de Por culpa del doctor Moreau; en Lectura y comprensión de textos me hizo reír recordando las clases de Lingüistica y me arrancó la carcajada Una cruzada psicológica. No es éste el único mérito, toda la obra es un cruce de fantasía y realidad dejando el sabor de haber leído algo inteligente. Es un regalo para el espíriru. Gracias.

Livia Felce
Method for Defense against Scorpions

(This opinion is about Fernando Sorrentino, not about a particular work.) Excelente manejo de los temas, con aire novedoso, atrapa al lector. Felicitaciones de parte de una venezolana que lo ha seguido, por casualidad, en otros sitios web donde ha publicado. Mera sugestión es un crimen perfecto del alter ego.

Alix
Method for Defense against Scorpions

(This opinion is about Fernando Sorrentino, not about a particular work.) I think Fernando Sorrentino is one the great masters of satire in our time. I have translated some of his works into Farsi. I am an Iranian translator living in Tehran. I recommend to tell your friends to know him in his life time.

Asadollah Amraee
Method for Defense against Scorpions

(Esta opinión se refiere al conjunto de la obra de Fernando Sorrentino.) Un escritor que acude, que instala las voces que narran lo que creemos nuestra verosimilitud, como un adivino propietario de nuestra incredulidad. Además, ¡es alegre! Un abrazo para él, de parte de los alumnos de la Escuela Media 6 1º 4ª de Mar del Tuyú.
