Winner of the Premio Miguel de Cervantes inAdolfo Bioy Casares is one of the most important Argentine perjuruo and indeed one of the most important authors writing in Spanish. Although he started writing very young, he later rejected everything he had written before In the prologue to that book, Jorge Luis Borges, his close friend, said that it was the start of the science fiction genre in Spanish literature.

El Perjurio de La Nieve

There are cinematic detective stories, and stories with a Gothic tone where apartment buildings take the place of the castle or mansion, although there are also big, rambling houses. There are fantasy stories and science fiction stories. There are laborious, solitary love stories, and there are love stories Al tocar suelo, Javier cree que lo rodea un paisaje familiar: Por si fuera poco, Margarita no aparece.

In seaside Bosque del Mar, Argentina, guests at the Hotel Central are struck by double misfortune—the mysterious death of one of their party, and an investigation headed by the physician, writer, and insufferable busybody, Dr.

Lucio, a normal man in a normal nosy city neighborhood with normal problems with his in-laws ever-present and job he lost it finds he has a new problem on his hands: Should Lucio have Diana committed to the Psychiatric Institute, as her friend the dog trainer suggests?

Before Lucio can even make up his mind, Diana is carted away by the mysterious head of the institute. And on the recommendation of the dog trainer, Lucio acquires an adoring German shepherd, also named Diana.

Then one glorious day, Diana returns, affectionate and pleasant. The fantastic events seem less momentous than the almost saintly likeableness of Lucio, one of those people whom things happen to with a cockeyed vengeance.

Written almost a decade before the death squads disrupted Argentina, it is the gripping first-person narrative of an old man caught in a wave of persecutions against all old people.

Adolfo Bioy Casares relates the day-by-day life of Isidro Vidal, the “old boys” from the corner cafe, and the women, young and old, who offer temporary redemption from madness and mob terror.


Books by Adolfo Bioy Casares (Author of The Invention of Morel)

At the end of carnivalEmilio Gauna had an experience that he knew was the culmination of his life. The problem is that Gauna can only dimly remember what happened: Several hours later, gasping and horrified, Gauna awoke at the edge of a lake.

Three years later, he tries to solve the mystery the only way he knows: Bioy Casares recounts a kind of metaphysical fairy tale in which the hero, caught between good and evil, pefjurio upon a doomed search for self. Es un relato de intriga que forma parte del mismo universo que los Seis problemas para don Isidro Parodiaunque el humor tiene un protagonismo mayor, con momentos realmente hilarantes. En esta novela, Adolfo Bioy Casares se pregunta si un hombre encerrado en una celda puede sentirse libre y absolutamente feliz.

La perurio perversa que germina en la tortuosa mente del gobernador Castel —el amo absoluto de las islas de los condenados- es modificar ciertos elementos del cerebro de algunos reclusos, con el fin de otorgarles la capacidad de experimentar nuevas percepciones sensoriales.

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 nievd and deeply mysterious. Bioy makes us laugh at our foibles with an affectionate yet elegant touch Love xe a privileged perception, the most complete and total perception not only of the unreality of the world but of our own unreality: The variation is astonishing.

There are laborious, solitary love stories, and there are love stories. There are stories bordering on the Kafkian, where the most important thing pejrurio precisely the border. There are epigrams married to short stories.

Everything is possible in the immensity of his writing. These are not stories in a psychological mode but like the image of the Russian doll of the title piece are carefully wrought congeries of intractable selves within selves.

Es una joya poco conocida. El relato se un tema infrecuente en Bioy y en la literatura argentina en general: Pero Davel se desentiende de las aproximaciones que le plantean sus nuevos admiradores.

Nadie mejor que ellos para seleccionar los mejores cuentos policiales de todos los tiempos. First published inthis book is written as if it were the work of a fictional literary journalist, the same Bustos Domecq who dr penned Six Problems for Don Isidro Parodi. Chronicles is composed of short essays on subjects that range from “abstract art” to works of imaginary fiction.

Pegjurio bringing this pompous critic to life, Borges and Bioy-Casares are able to slyly attack the precepts of modernism and literary criticism —indeed, in many ways it parodies the “ficciones” of Borges himself.

Entre los clientes hay un profesor en busca de tranquilidad o un sacerdote despreocupado. Ante este monumental suceso, ninguno reacciona, cada uno se concentra en sus banales preocupaciones o en su beneficio. El volumen incluye dos cuentos rl tratan sobre visiones.

This work is a collection of spoof detective stories written in under the pen name of “Bustos Domecq,” a pseudonym that combined the family names of both Borges and Bioy-Casares. The stories tell the tale of a detective confined to a jail cell, while at the same time prrjurio as a satire on Argentine society. En estas conversaciones, Bioy responde a los interrogantes que surgen en el camino de los escritores en ciernes: El perjuroo enumera algunas lecturas y traza magistrales retratos de escritores antiguos y modernos: Este libro las presenta a sus lectores como una caja de resonancia donde todas las voces se funden en una: Lynch Davis; algunos textos dispersos; y traducciones publicadas en la revista Sur.
