“Un Pacto con el Diablo” by Juan Jose Arreola
I love a good “pact with the devil” story and what better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than reading this one byArreola, considered one of Mexico’s finest short story writers? It has a modern setting and a neat little twist. You can read it online at Ciudad Seva, where a number of his stories are archived. The story is in Spanish, but Google translate will give you the gist.
See you tomorrow!
