Edgardo Cozarinsky was born in Buenos Aires in 1939 and now divides his time between that city and Paris. Best known for his subtle, semi-documentary films, he is the author of two notable short story collections, The Bride from Odessa and Urban Voodoo.Review:
"Following the trafficking of women from eastern Europe during the 1920s and in the post-Communist era, this melancholy novel is powerfully written and is highly resonant for today's audience" -- Catherine Neilan Financial Times "Imagine a mixture of Borges, Thomas Pynchon, South American tango and Jewish musicals, and you begin to get the flavour of this extraordinary book" Jewish Chronicle "Airy, atmospheric, haunted by phantom breezes and the blurring of time; rich with the scent of sea voyages, cemeteries and the musty libraries, tango halls and Yiddish theatres of a long-forgotten Buenos Aires" -- Anderson Tepper Times Literary Supplement "A strange and profoundly moving addition to the literature of the Diaspora" -- Kate Saunders The Times "A remarkable and memorable achievement" -- Allan Massie Scotsman
