The shipyard by Juan Carlos Onetti( Book )

259 editions published between 1960 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,355 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 )

143 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,858 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."

Cuando ya no importe by Juan Carlos Onetti( Book )

61 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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.' Information about Onetti and the role of the imaginary Santamaría in his work would have been helpful"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Tierra de nadie by Juan Carlos Onetti( Book )

70 editions published between 1941 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the existential concern that has dominated his work and with the intention of breaking down even the minimum perceptions, Juan Carlos Onetti writes this urban story in which the characters and the city are treated as if they devour each other and form a single indivisible object. The pure present, no traces of the past and glimpses of the future, and action, almost always trivial, characterize these characters circulating in the city that absorbs their desires and frustrations"--Goodreads

La novia robada by Juan Carlos Onetti( Book )

36 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La historia que cuenta en La novia robada (1968) no traza más que la desventura de una mujer, Moncha Insaurralde, dominada por su vestido nupcial; una novia venida de un viaje a Europa para casarse con un muerto, Marcos Bergner. Es el recuerdo de un recuerdo: el de la joven Moncha cuyo matrimonio no llegó a realizarse y cuyo vestido de novia utilizaba las noches de luna. Este relato se inscribe dentro del ciclo de Santa María, lugar inventado por Onetti, donde se desarrollan varios cuentos del autor, y no es tan sórdidos como pueden serlo, por ejemplo, El astillero o Juntacadáveres. Estamos ante una breve joya de todo un maestro, que no necesitan excusas

El doctor Díaz Grey lleva muchos años ejerciendo su profesión en la ciudad de Santa María.

Esta historia se entrecruza con la de Augusto Goerdel, encarnación del mal y portador de la muerte. Goerdel, protegido por el padre Bergner, está dispuesto a destruir a todo aquel que se atreva a atacarlo
