Dormir al sol by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )

"Bordenave, employé de banque congédié à la suite d'une grève malencontreuse, est devenu horloger. Il mène une existence paisible dans sa maison du quartier populaire de Buenos aires. Soudain, et pour des raisons inconnues, sa femme Diana est enfermée dans une clinique psychiatrique. Dès lors, la vie de l'horloger, faite de conventions, va être bouleversée par une série de péripéties bizarres et inquiétantes, entre autres l'intervention de sa belle-soeur, des entretiens avec le fascinant Reger Samaniego, directeur de la clinique, et l'apparition d'une chienne qui curieusement s'appelle Diana comme sa femme. Enfin, le comportement de la vraie Diana, sortie de clinique, lui fait prendre conscience, petit à petit, qu'autour de lui se produisent d'étrangers transferts et des mutations d'âmes et de corps ... Dormir au soleil s'inscrit dans le cadre de ces imaginations pour ainsi dire " frontalières ", à cheval sur le rêve et la réalité, dont cet auteur a construit un royaume très singulier et qui lui ont valu d'être, avec Borges, l'écrivain le plus marquant de la littérature sud-américaine d'aujourd'hui

"In seaside Bosque de Mar, Argentina, guests at the Hotel Central are struck by double misfortun--the mysterious death of one of their party, and an investigation headed by the physician, writer and insufferable busybody, Dr. Humberto Huberman. When quiet, young translator Mary is found dead on the first night of Huberman's stay, he quickly appoints himself leader of an inquiry that will see blame apportioned in turn to each and every guest--including Mary's own sister--and culminating in a wild, wind-blown reconnaissance mission to the nearby shipwreck, the Joseph K"--Page 4 of cover

The invention of Morel; and other stories from La trama celeste by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )

10 editions published between 1964 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Jorge Luis Borges declared The Invention of Morel a masterpiece of plotting, comparable to The Turn of The Screw and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Set on a mysterious island, Bioy's novella is a story of suspense and exploration, as well as a wonderfully unlikely romance, in which every detail is at once crystal clear and deeply mysterious. Inspired by Bioy Casares's fascination with the movie star Louise Brooks, The Invention of Morel has gone on to live a secret life of its own. Greatly admired by Julio Cortazar, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Octavio Paz, the novella helped to usher in Latin American fiction's now famous postwar boom. As the model for Alain Resnais and Alain Robbe-Grillet's Last Year in Marienbad, it also changed the history of film
Diary of the War of the Pig : a novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )

12 editions published between 1969 and 1989 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...fictional chronicle about street terror and disappearances by the greatest living Argentine author. Written almost a decade before the death squads disrupted Argentina, it is the gripping first-person narrative of an old man caught in a wave of persecutions against all old people, and might well stand as a metaphor for the murkier currents of Latin American society today. Adolfo Bioy Casares relates the day-by-day life of Isidro Vidal, the "old boys" from the corner cafe, and the women, young and old, who offer temporary redemption from madness and mob terror. Part Allegory and part irreducible dream, this story of courage, cowardice, and love is disquieting testimony on the human condition of our southern neighbors."--Goodreads

"Cuando Enrique Nevers, en un momento de debilidad, aceptó alejarse de su amada para administrar la cárcel de las islas de la Salvación, estaba lejos de imaginar los terribles acontecimientos que lo tendrían como único testigo... Plan de evasión narra la odisea de Nevers... La revelación final, alcanzada a través de parciales vislumbres y muertes furtivas, arroja una inesperada luz sobre el destino de los personajes. Esta edición acompañada de un prólogo del profesor de literatura de la Universitat de Barcelona Bernat Castany, que contextualiza la novela en el tiempo y en la obra del autor, y expone, a su vez, las interrealaciones entre la literatura de Bioy Casares y la de Jorge Luis Borges, inseparables en la vida y en el papel."--Page [4] of cover
