Item Description: North Point Press, 1990. paperback. Book Condition: Very Good In Wrappers. 1st Edition. San Francisco. 1990. North Point Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. 184 pages. paperback. 0865474362. Jacket painting by Antonio Segui. Jacket design: David Bullen. Includes Stories by Silvina Ocampo. Adolfo Bioy-Casares. Fernando Sorrentino. & Many Others. keywords: Literature Translated Argentina Latin America Anthology. inventory # 14294. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This exciting collection of stories from the 1980s by fourteen of Argentinaís finest living writers shows how far the story has evolved under the brilliant influence of Borges. In a variety of settings and styles these fantastical stories expose the tenuous nature of identity, some through the unexpected appearances of doubles. In Silvina Ocampoís story, an artist meets her younger self; Adolfo Bioy-Casaresís Argentine tourist finds himself trapped in a labyrinth in East Berlin. In a beautifully haunting story by Jorge Asis, a salesman of religious artifacts visits a remote village, learns that he bears an uncanny resemblance to the recently deceased village hero, Mule, and daringly assumes the dead manís persona. Fernando Sorrentino renders an age-old tale: in his version a young man witnesses the appearance of a dybbuk in suburban Buenos Aires. Each an accomplished work on its own, together these stories form a magnificent collection introducing to English readers startling voices from Argentinaís literary landscape. Di Giovanniís choice of living writers whose stories have been first published in the eighties makes this volume the first of its kind to appear in the English-speaking world. ĎIn Argentina a story tends to take upon itself all the untrammelled freedom of the imagination.í - Jorge Luis Borges. Contents includes: Acknowledgements, Introduction, THE DRAWING LESSON by Silvina Ocampo, THE WINDOWLESS ROOM by Adolfo Bioy-Casares, LOTZ MAKES NO REPLY by Isidoro Blaisten, JAVIER WICONDAíS SISTERS by Fernando Sánchez-Sorondo, CELESTE GOES DANCING by Estela dos Santos, NEITHER SAINTS NOR SINNERS by Alberto Vanasco, SHORT STORY CONTEST by Marcos Aguinis, YOUíVE GOT A NIPPER, DONíT YOU? by Eduardo Gudiño-Kieffer, THE LETTER TO RICARDO by Liliana Heer, THE VISITATION by Fernando Sorrentino, A MEMORY OF PUNKAL by Angel Bonomini, MULE by Jorge Asis, FOR SERVICES RENDERED by Abelardo Castillo, and COUSINS by Santiago Sylvester. Also included are Notes on Contributors. NORMAN THOMAS DI GIOVANNI has translated ten of Borgesís books into English, a number of them in collaboration with the author. An American by birth, di Giovanni has lived in Britain since 1972, currently in Devon. Bookseller Inventory # 14294

Item Description: Paul Dry Books, Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 140 x 215 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. These wide-ranging conversations have an exceptionally open and intimate tone, giving us a personal glimpse of one of the most fascinating figures in contemporary world literature.Interviewer Fernando Sorrentino, an Argentinian writer and anthologist, is endowed with literary acumen, sensitivity, urbanity, and an encyclopedic memory of Jorge Luis Borges work (in his prologue, Borges jokes that Sorrentino knows his work much better than I do ). Borges wanders from nostalgic reminiscence to literary criticism, and from philosophical speculation to political pronouncements. His thoughts on literature alone run the gamut from the Bible and Homer to Ernest Hemingway and Julio Cortazar. We learn that Dante is the writer who has impressed Borges most, that Borges considers Federico Garcia Lorca to be a second-rate poet, and that he feels Adolfo Bioy Casares is one of the most important authors of this century. Borges dwells lovingly on Buenos Aires, too.From the preface: For seven afternoons, the teller of tales preceded me, opening tall doors which revealed unsuspected spiral staircases, through the National Library s pleasant maze of corridors, in search of a secluded little room where we would not be interrupted by the telephone.The Borges who speaks to us in this book is a courteous, easy-going gentleman who verifies no quotations, who does not look back to correct mistakes, who pretends to have a poor memory; he is not the terse Jorge Luis Borges of the printed page, that Borges who calculates and measures each comma and each parenthesis. Sorrentino and translator Clark M. Zlotchew have included an appendix on the Latin American writers mentioned by Borges. Bookseller Inventory # AAG9781589880603

His thoughts on literature alone run the gamut from the Bible and Homer to Ernest Hemingway and Julio Cortazar. We learn that Dante is the writer who has impressed Borges most, that Borges considers Federico Garcia Lorca to be a second-rate poet, and that he feels Adolfo Bioy Casares is one of the most important authors of this century. Borges dwells lovingly on Buenos Aires, too.From the preface: For seven afternoons, the teller of tales preceded me, opening tall doors which revealed unsuspected spiral staircases, through the National Library s pleasant maze of corridors, in search of a secluded little room where we would not be interrupted by the telephone.The Borges who speaks to us in this book is a courteous, easy-going gentleman who verifies no quotations, who does not look back to correct mistakes, who pretends to have a poor memory; he is not the terse Jorge Luis Borges of the printed page, that Borges who calculates and measures each comma and each parenthesis. Sorrentino and translator Clark M. Zlotchew have included an appendix on the Latin American writers mentioned by Borges. Bookseller Inventory # AAG9781589880603
