The Critic – Francisco Costantini


The prestigious guest finished reading the manuscript. Olaf moved up to him and, eagerly, asked:
“What do you think?”
The critic stroked his white beard and pursed his lips.
“I like it,” he replied, “although I prefer the Bible.”
Then, looking firmly at his interlocutor, he added: “But your work, as fiction, is very good. And the best thing is the name you’ve given my character.”
“You think so?”
“Oh, yes!” he confirmed. “Star Maker is excellent.”
