The invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )

242 editions published between 1940 and 2016 in 13 languages and held by 1,755 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

Asleep in the sun by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )

82 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Lucio, a normal man in a normal (nosy) city neighborhood with normal problems with his wife (not the easiest person to get along with) and family and job (he lost it) finds he has a much bigger problem: his wife is a dog. At first, it doesn't seem like such a problem, because the German shepherd inhabiting his wife's body is actually a good deal more agreeable than his wife herself, now occupying the body of the same German shepherd in a mental hospital run by scientists who, it appears, have designs on the whole neighborhood. But then Lucio has a sense, however confused, of what's right, which is an even bigger problem yet. Asleep in the Sun is the great work of the Argentine master Adolfo Bioy Casares's later years. Like his legendary Invention of Morel, it is an intoxicating mixture of fantasy, sly humor, and menace. Whether read as a fable of modern politics, a meditation on the elusive parameters of the self, or a most unusual love story, Bioy's book is an almost scarily perfect comic turn, as well as a pure delight

A plan for escape by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )

90 editions published between 1945 and 2009 in 9 languages and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Plan for Escape is a weird, engrossing novel, bound to captivate--if not totally satisfy--most readers. The story revolves around Henri Nevers, a Frenchman sent by his father to a post at a penal colony in French Guiana. Arriving at Cayenne, the seat of government, Nevers learns that the governor, Castel, has deserted Cayerme to "be alone with the prisoners" on the islands. When Nevers ferries to the islands, Castel meets him with delight as "an educated collaborator." Nevers intuits that "Castel's interest in social and prison matters is strictly sadistic," and he tries to remain uninvolved. Confronted by inmates' allusive remarks and his own observations, however, he is compelled to follow the clues that lead him to unearth the horrible results of Castel's reign. Despite the novel's horrors, its tone is eerily distanced by its point of view: The tale is narrated by Nevers' uncle who has pieced it together from his nephew's letters. This perspective allows for holes in the story which readers who demand closure may not accept. (What-they might ask-is Nevers' motivation for making his last, dangerous trip?) Other readers will enjoy puzzling over the small mysteries left after the main mystery is solved. The relationship between prisoners and keepers is a dominant theme. As one character states, "Conscience and prisons are incompatible." This theme proceeds from Argentinian writer Bioy-Casares' reaction to accounts of Nazism in 1945, and it also-as others have noted--predicts the systematic tortures that would take place in his country in the 1970s. --Independent Publisher
Six problems for Don Isidro Parodi by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

59 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siempre hay duplas exitosas, y no sólo por que el resultado de la dupla sea un éxito económico, si no por que algunas veces dos personas talentosas se unen para formar un todo que va más allá de sus talentos individuales. Eso ocurre con este libro. Tengo entendido que fue concebido una tarde (o noche) en la estancia de Bioy Casares, entre copas de caña y charlas intelectuales. A pesar de su orígen social, Borges siempre adoró a los malevos y al tango y, en este libro, ambos han recreado de manera muy precisa la vida en los conventillos de Buenos Aires donde ambas cosas (los malevos y el tango) tienen su orígen. Pero, también han sabido usar un humor sarcástico y casi ácido a la hora de retratar a las personas de "alcurnia" que visitan la celda de Don Isidro (un preso inocente devenido a detective con una capacidad asombrosa para deducir los casos que se le presentan). Imperdible. Un detalle: el "lunfardo" y la forma de hablar de lo que, en los años 1930-1940, se consideraba "un porteño canchero."

61 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narra las peripecias de Nicolasito Almanza durante su estancia en La Plata ciudad a la que acude en el cumplimiento de su primer encargo como fotógrafo profesionaly de sus azarosas relaciones con la familia Lombardo y los personajes que pueblan su mundo de huésped de pensión. Apariencia y realidad, sueño y vigilia, plena consciencia y alucinación, se funden sutilmente para subrayar la fundamental ambigüedad de este relato, que, si bien participa de los elementos de la novela de intriga y del relato fantástico, es, a la vez, una hermosa historia de amor

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
