Poundemonium by Julián Ríos( Book )

38 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With him. Filled with allusions to Pound's life and works and written in a style similar to Finnegans Wake, Rios's word-mad novel features the same characters from his first novel, Larva: the poet Milalias, his girlfriend Babelle, and their mentor X. Reis, each of whom writes part of the novel: Milalias writes the Joycean main text, Reis (as Herr Narrator) adds commentary on facing pages, and Babelle furnishes maps and photos. Together, they compile the "Parting Shots."
Monstruary by Julián Ríos( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rios takes us into the eerie existence of the painter Victor Mons, who has created a series of works titled Monstruary, a menagerie of personal demons summoned from the disturbing and often erotic images of his past."--Jacket
Loves that bind by Julián Ríos( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emil, the mysterious narrator, has been abandoned by the woman he loves. Filled with doubt and nostalgia, bent on therapy or distraction or revenge, he wanders the city in search of her. Driven by the anguish of rejection and desire, he writes twenty-six letters to his fugitive lover, each an intricately detailed account of his affairs with twenty-six women who preceded her. Each of these figures bears an uncanny resemblance to a famous literary heroine, from Proust's Albertine to Fitzgerald's Daisy to Nabokov's Lolita to Queneau's Zazie. One by one, in alphabetical order, Emil's letters adopt the tone, style, and substance of the great novelists of the twentieth century, while, in recollection, his past love affairs grow increasingly extravagant and hallucinatory. As we follow his physical and creative journey, we try to unravel fact from fantasy, emotion from delusion, while searching for clues to the novel's amorous alphabet, the building blocks of modernist and postmodernist literature
Larva : midsummer night's Babel by Julián Ríos( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Larva is an account of a masquerade party in an abandoned mansion in London. Milalias (disguised as Don Juan) searches for Babelle (as Sleeping Beauty) through a linguistic funhouse of puns and wordplay recalling Joyce's Finnegans Wake. A mock-scholarly commentary reveals the backgrounds of the masked revelers, while Rios's allusive language shows that words too wear masks, hiding an astonishing range of further meanings and implications. Larva revives a Hispanic tradition repressed for centuries by introducing the English tradition of puns, palmodromes, and acrostics, and establishes Rios as the most accomplished successor (in any language) to Joyce."--Jacket

The House of Ulysses : a novel by Julián Ríos( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julián Ríos's latest comic extravaganza is at once a serious literary excavation and a lecture as delivered by Groucho Marx on the subject of that great (and often imposing) cornerstone of world literature: James Joyce's Ulysses. Every book is born out of an earlier book (or books), and much as Joyce's novel unraveled Homer scene by scene, Ríos's The House of Ulysses returns the favor, giving us several bickering characters hoping to get to the bottom of Joyce's masterpiece (by force, if necessary)-- their conversation walking the line between a slapstick parody of the Joyce industry and a legitimate 'guide for the perplexed.' Focusing on each of Joyce's characters, ideas, and references in turn, The House of Ulysses provides a playful, punning, ideal companion for the experienced Joycean and cautious procrastinator alike: one novel dreaming its way through another"--P. [4] of cover
