Item Description: And Other Stories, United Kingdom, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Korea, a little Buddhist monk (really very dwarf-sized) dreams of the Western world and secretly reads up on Western culture. When he meets the holidaying French couple Napoleon Chirac and Jacqueline Bloodymary he offers his services as their guide, in the hope they will take him, a penniless monk, to Europe. He whisks them off on a tour of the temples. Among the many twists and turns, our stunned tourists encounter a suicidal horse and discover that a person can also be a robot. Though our monk appears to them as the very spirit of tourism, nothing is natural in this tour de force of Aira s twisted imagination. Bookseller Inventory # LIB9781908276988

Item Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 178 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Cesar Aira s newest novel in English is not about a conventional doctor. Single, in his forties, and poor, Dr. Aira is a skeptic. His personality -- his weaknesses, whims, and pet peeves -- is summed up in a series of digressions and regressions but he has a very special gift for miracles. He no longer cares about miracles, however, and has no faith in them. Perhaps he is even a little ashamed about his supernatural powers. Such is Dr. Aira, who also has to confront his arch-enemy-- chief of the Pinero Hospital, Dr. Actyn -- who is constantly trying to prove that Dr. Aira is a charlatan. Poor Dr. Aira is indeed a worker of miracles, but Cesar Aira -- the magesterial author -- sends the very human doctor stumbling toward the biggest trap of all, in this magical book.

Item Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Translation. 178 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. An Episode in the Life of a Landscape Painter is the story of a moment in the life of the German artist Johan Moritz Rugendas (1802-1858). Greatly admired as a master landscape painter, he was advised by Alexander von Humboldt to travel West from Europe to record the spectacular landscapes of Chile, Argentina, and Mexico. Rugendas did in fact become one of the best of the nineteenth-century European painters to venture into Latin America. However this is not a biography of Rugendas. This work of fiction weaves an almost surreal history around the secret objective behind Rugendas trips to America: to visit Argentina in order to achieve in art the physiognomic totality of von Humboldt s scientific vision of the whole. Rugendas is convinced that only in the mysterious vastness of the immense plains will he find true inspiration. A brief and dramatic visit to Mendosa gives him the chance to fulfill his dream. From there he travels straight out onto the pampas, praying for that impossible moment, which would come only at an immense pricean almost monstrously exorbitant price that would ultimately challenge his drawing and force him to create a new way of making art. A strange episode that he could not avoid absorbing savagely into his own body interrupts the trip and irreversibly and explosively marks him for life. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780811216302

Item Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 173 x 124 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Among other things, this novella is an ironic allegory of the poet s vocation and inspiration, the subtlety of artistic genius, and our need to give literature an historic, national, psychological, and aesthetic context. But Aira goes further still -- converting the ironic allegory into a formidable parody of the expectations that all narrative texts generate -- by laying out the pathos of a man who between one night and the following morning is touched by genius. Once again Aira surprises us with his unclassifiable fiction: original and enjoyable, worthy of many a thoughtful chuckle, Varamo invites the reader to become an accomplice in the author s irresistible game.

Daily conversations in outdoor cafes with cultured friends can help make reality a little more real. Unfortunately, however, during one such conversation, one man spots a gold Rolex watch on a TV soap opera s goatherd. This seemingly small absurdity sets off alarms: strange sensations of deception, distress, and incipient madness. The two men s uneasiness soon becomes a nightmare as the TV adventure advances with a real-life plot involving a mutant strain of killer algae to take over the world! The Conversations, a reality within a fiction within a parallel reality, is hilariously funny and surprisingly touching. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780811221108

Maxi, a middle-class, directionless ox of a young man who helps the trash pickers of Buenos Aires s shantytown, attracts the attention of a corrupt, trigger-happy policeman who will use anyone including two innocent teenage girls to break a drug ring that he believes is operating within the slum. A strange new drug, a brightly lit carousel of a slum, the kindness of strangers, gunplay. no matter how serious the subject matter, and despite Aira s fascination with urban violence and the sinister underside of Latin American politics (The Millions), Shantytown, like all of Aira s mesmerizing work, is filled with wonder and mad invention.

Item Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. One Saturday night a bankrupt bachelor in his sixties and his mother dine with a wealthy friend. They discuss their endlessly connected neighbors. They talk about a mysterious pit that opened up one day, and the old bricklayer who sometimes walked to the cemetery to cheer himself up. Anxious to show off his valuable antiques, the host shows his guests old windup toys and takes them to admire an enormous doll. Back at home, the bachelor decides to watch some late night TV before retiring. The news quickly takes a turn for the worse as, horrified, the newscaster finds herself reporting about the dead rising from their graves, leaving the cemetery, and sucking the blood of the living all somehow, disturbingly reminiscent of the dinner party.

Item Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 175 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Daily conversations in outdoor cafes with cultured friends can help make reality a little more real. Unfortunately, however, during one such conversation, one man spots a gold Rolex watch on a TV soap opera s goatherd. This seemingly small absurdity sets off alarms: strange sensations of deception, distress, and incipient madness. The two men s uneasiness soon becomes a nightmare as the TV adventure advances with a real-life plot involving a mutant strain of killer algae to take over the world! The Conversations, a reality within a fiction within a parallel reality, is hilariously funny and surprisingly touching. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780811221108

Item Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 175 x 124 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Seamstress and the Wind is a deliciously laugh-out-loud-funny novel. A seamstress who is sewing a wedding dress for the pregnant local art teacher fears that her son, while playing in a big semitruck, has been accidentally kidnapped and driven off to Patagonia. Completely unhinged, she calls a local taxi to follow the semi in hot pursuit. When her husband finds out what s happened, he takes off after wife and child. They race not only to the end of the world, but to adventures in desire -- where the wild Southern wind falls in love with the seamstress, and a monster child takes up with the truck driver. Interspersed are Aira s musings about memory and childhood, and his hometown of Coronel Pringles, with a compelling view of the hard lot of this working-class town, situated not far from Buenos Aires.
