The shipyard by Juan Carlos Onetti( Book )

75 editions published between 1961 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With all the enthusiasm of a man condemned to be hanged, Larsen takes up his new post. Like the other workers at the shipyard, he routinely goes through the motions. Every so often, his sense of reality is shaken by a tremor of self-deception, and then it is possible to believe that the yard's glory is not just a thing of the past.--[publisher's description]
A brief life by Juan Carlos Onetti( Book )

81 editions published between 1950 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 1,632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1950, A Brief Life is the first novel to feature Onetti's mythical town of Santa Maria. His protagonist Brausen eavesdrops on the conversation of his neighbours, a husband and wife, imagining their gestures, their expressions. Brausen lives with his wife, who has undergone major surgery after being diagnosed with breast cancer. To compensate for this physical void which stalls their caresses, Brausen imagines stories: of Santa Maria, and of a doctor named Diaz Grey. But he not only wishes to imagine himself as someone else, he also seeks release from himself and from the world he knows. He leads many lives, some real and some fantastic, in order to experience a moment of psychic weightlessness - a "brief life."

"Bush's affecting translation of Onetti's last novel (Cuando ya no me importe) immediately draws one into the world of a narrator so desperate for a job that he'll take absolutely anything: 'There is no crust of bread too stale for me.'
