Sabelotodo Entiendelonada is a collection of six stories which continue and extend the themes cultivated by the author in Tunomás Honey. Very much at home in the northern New Mexican highlands, author Sagel offers us fresh insights into the distinctive multicultural environment of his tierra. The title story recounts the comical but poignant sinsabores of Sabelotodo Entiendelonada, a man so nicknamed because of the contrast between his extensive formal legal education his total ineptitude at simple ranching activities requiring no more than common sense. Among the other unusual characters in the collection are Doña Refugio, and old woman whose closest companion is Death, and Petenrita (Pete and Rita), a couple who have been quarreling constantly for their 54 years of married life. Finally, "The Tierra Amarilla Invasion" is a semifictionalized account of a bizarre incident that occurred in the Cold War atmosphere of 1952 New Mexico.--From page [4] of cover
