Susana sees Father Renteria as if in a vision, “A diffuse light burns in the place of its heart, a tiny heart pulsing like a flickering flame”, then when she can see more clearly we learn he is holding a candle with cupped hands in front of him.

This blending of real and unreal is in everything: San Pascual, the King of the Graveyard, the Pulque as milk-like but alcoholic.

Everything’s mystical perception.
