Description:

New York. 1975. Dutton. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 45. 176 pages. January 1975. hardcover. Cover: John Clarke. 0525082379. keywords: February 25. inventory # 6432. FROM THE PUBLISHER - As it was for James Joyce, language is the true hero of this remarkable novel. A literary tour de force that can be read and enjoyed on many levels, COBRA is the story of a transvestite named Cobra whose obsession is to transform his/her body. She is assisted in her efforts at metamorphoses by the Madam and Pup, Cobra’s dwarfish double. They too change shape, as does the text itself in a brilliant series of scene shifts that range from The Lyrical Theater of the Dolls, where Cobra performs, through the violent ceremonies of a motorcycle gang, into a sect of Tibetan lamas seeking to revive Tantric Buddhism, finally to ‘the pause that refreshes’ in modern India. Playful, humorous, wildly imaginative, Cobra, winner of the Prix Médicis in France, is indeed a literary event. ‘The most representative, the most gifted - and also the funniest - of the ‘new new novelists.’ - Le Monde. Assistance for the translation of this volume was given by the Center for Inter-American Relations. SEVERO SARDUY who was born in Cuba, is the author of FROM CUBA WITH A SONG, one of three novellas in TRIPLE CROSS, published in 1972, which marked Sarduy’s first appearance in English. His work is considered the most experimental and challenging of all contemporary Latin American fiction. Ten years ago he left Cuba to settle in Paris, where he now serves as an editor in a publishing house. (original title: Cobra, 1972 - Editions du Seuil & Editorial Sudamericana S.A.).
