This article is not an authentic survey. The responses to the question “¿Cuál es, a su juicio, el peor libro del año?”, [What, in your opinion, is the worst book of the year?] supposedly offered by such personages as Leopoldo Lugones, Arturo Capdevilla, Gustavo Martínez Zuviría, Ricardo Rojas, Jorge Luis Borges, and Ricardo Güiraldes among others, were actually invented by the magazine’s editors. Moreover, the answers are parodies of each of the aforementioned writers given that they exacerbate distinctive features and traits of those who were supposedly surveyed.
