Formas breves by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 277 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

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

The absent city by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

26 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 132 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."--BOOK JACKET.
