Most widely held works by Mirta Arlt
El amor brujo by Roberto Arlt( Book )

7 editions published between 1964 and 1972 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tras su apariencia de novelón decimonónico, El amor brujo cuenta la tragicomedia de un burgués, Estanislao Balder, que para superar su existencia anodina se lanza a una aventura amorosa tan dulzona como torpe. Sutil e imprevisible, hay que llegar hasta el final para calibrar el alcance de la crítica, cuya acidez desnuda al hombre fatuo, aparentemente satisfecho. En esta última novela de Arlt, más que en ninguna otra, se manifiestan las debilidades y los rencores que apremiaron a este François Villon de quilombo, como lo definió Cortázar, y destellan esas imágenes inapelables y delatoras que nos ponen frente a nosotros mismos y nuestras vergonzosas flaquezas

The seven madmen : a novel by Roberto Arlt( Book )

18 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in Spanish and Portuguese and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A weird wonder of Argentine and modern literature, a crucial work for Julio Cortazar ("If there's one person in my country I feel close to, it's Roberto Arlt"), The Seven Madmen begins when its hapless and hopeless hero, Erdosain, is dismissed from his job as a bill collector for embezzlement. Then his wife leaves him and things only go downhill after that. Erdosain wanders the crowded, confusing streets of Buenos Aires, thronging with immigrants almost as displaced and alienated as he is, and finds himself among a group of conspirators who are in thrall to a man known simply as the Astrologer. The Astrologer has the cure for everything that ails civilization. Unemployment will be cured by mass enslavement. (Mountains will be hollowed out and turned into factories.) Mass enslavement will be funded by industrial-scale prostitution. That scheme will be kicked off with murder. "D'you know you look like Lenin?" Erdosain asks the Astrologer. Meanwhile Erdosain struggles to determine the physical location and dimensions of the soul, this thing that is causing him so much pain. Brutal, uncouth, caustic, and brilliantly colored, The Seven Madmen takes its bearings from Dostoyevsky while looking forward to Thomas Pynchon and Marvel Comics"--
