"Complete translation of Nombre falso, for which Sergio Gabriel Waisman earned a Eugene M. Kayden Meritorious Achievement Award in 1995. Given the stature of Piglia's writing and its potential interest to English-language scholars and students of contemporary Argentine literature, one wishes for more extensive introductory and bibliographical material"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
The absent city by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Absent City takes the form of a futuristic detective novel. In the end, however, it is a meditation on the nature of totalitarian regimes, on the transition to democracy after the end of such regimes, and on the power of language to create and define reality. Ricardo Piglia combines his trademark avant-garde aesthetics with cultural and political insights into Argentina's history and contemporary condition in this work." "The novel follows Junior, a reporter for a daily Buenos Aires newspaper, as he attempts to locate a secret machine that contains the mind and the memory of a woman named Elena. While Elena produces stories that reflect on actual events in Argentina, the police are seeking her destruction because of the revelations of atrocities that she - the machine - is disseminating through texts and taped recordings. The book thus portrays the race to recover the history and memory of a city and a country where history has largely been obliterated by political repression. Its narratives - all part of a detective story, all part of something more - multiply as they intersect with each other, like the streets and avenues of Buenos Aires itself."--Jacket

Prisión perpetua by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

40 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in Spanish and Portuguese and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este volumen está formado por dos novelas cortas escritas casisimultáneamente, Prisión perpetua y Encuentro en Saint-Nazaire. En ellasse adivina la afición de Piglia por combinar géneros muy diferentes enun mismo texto, de modo que el lector pueda hallar destellos del relatopolicial, filológico y fantástico, así como la lógica del discursoensayístico y la intimidad del diario. El resultado final es unapeculiar miscelánea de inspiración borgeana; una manera de narrar quetranscurre en un ámbito cerrado -una novela carcelaria -, que sirvetambién como clave de lectura de otras obras, anteriores y posteriores,de Ricardo Piglia
El último lector by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

32 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sólo vemos una vez a don Quijote leer libros de caballería y es cuando hojea el falso Quijote de Avellaneda, donde se cuentan las aventuras que él nunca ha vivido: precisamente en el momento en que la novela pone en escena su capacidad de absorber el mundo para ficcionalizarlo todo. Tenemos las fotos en que Borges intenta descifrar las letras de un libro que sostiene casi pegado a su cara; la de Joyce, un ojo tapado con un parche, leyendo con una lupa de gran aumento. Y hay una instantánea en la que el Che Guevara, trepado a una rama en plena selva boliviana, se concentra en la lectura, y tenemos también a Hamlet apareciendo por primera vez en escena con un libro en la mano. Y a Anna Karenina, a Madame Bovary; a esos lectores tan locos, geniales e inadecuados como Hamlet y Alonso Quijano que son Bouvard y Pécuchet. ¿Qué significan estas escenas de lectura, escenas secundarias y casi irrelevantes para las tramas novelescas, pero en las que asoma su sistema secreto? Piglia vuelve a mostrar que es uno de los grandes maestros en la construcción de itinerarios insólitos para leer la literatura contemporánea, en un libro extraordinario que, en palabras del autor, es "el más personal y el más íntimo de todos los que he escrito"."

Formas breves by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

29 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formas breves es una recopilación de textos misceláneos que el propioautor describe como páginas perdidas en el diario de un escritor . Enellas reflexiona sobre la literatura, desde la ficción hasta elpensamiento crítico; desde el diálogo con los autores que se hanconvertido en la estela de su obra e imaginario -Arlt, Macedonio,Borges, Gombrowicz, Kafka, Chéjov, Joyce y Hemingway, entre otros- hastalos temas más abstractos, como la naturaleza del relato corto o el puntode inflexión entre realidad y ficción. Este es un homenaje a laliteratura misma; un lugar donde se pone en juego su doble filo: unaficción que se lee como una verdad apócrifa y un realismo que aparececomo un artificio veraz

Un oscuro día de justicia ; Zugzwang by Rodolfo J Walsh( Book )

6 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in Spanish and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rodolfo Walsh was a writer who related to a hard reality on many levels. He was active as a guerrilla fighter for the Monteneros, he translated crime novels, worked as a crime reporter, and carried a gun himself. Walsh's literary work is highly conceptual, and his style is refined and subtle. Walsh used fiction to create a niche for reality, but his various reports on reality and his open political criticism put his life in jeopardy. He was an early exponent of what was later to be dubbed the New Journalism, as in his best-known work 'Operation Massacre' (1957), in which he reconstructed one of the many bloodbaths for which the state was responsible. He was shot in Buenos Aires on 25 March 1977 after having criticised the state terror of Videla and his junta in an open letter. There are several accounts of how Rodolfo Walsh was killed. The newspapers wrote that he was taken from his home by men dressed as civilians, without mentioning his death. The unofficial story, told by friends and relatives, is that he was shot on the street by a military death squad. At the time when Walsh was grappling with the problem of how to give form to reality, books played an important role in his country. The hounding down of intellectuals had begun, and any book that the regime considered potentially subversive was destroyed. Books were hidden or smuggled out of the country in order to be preserved. That is how a copy of Un oscuro día de justicia passed through a library in Paris before ending up in the collection of the Amsterdam University Library, where we found it in the archives. 'Un oscuro día de justicia [A Dark Day of Justice]' is a story based on Walsh's time at an Irish boarding school in Argentina. The struggle in the schoolyard reflects the conflict-ridden society of Argentina. The book was published in 1973, a year between two dictatorships, and has never been reprinted until now
