About this Item: Elmwood Park IL. 1988. The Dalkey Archive Press, 1988. green cloth hardbound 8vo. dustwrapper in protective plastic book jacket cover. fine cond. binding square & tight. covers clean. edges clean. contents free of all markings. dustwrapper in fine cond. not worn or torn or price clipped. nice clean copy. no library markings, store stamps, stickers, bookplates, no names, inking , underlining, remainder markings etc ~ first edition so stated. first printing (nap) of this new edition (1936 original). xii+206p. modern literature. surrealism. spanish literature. novels. fiction. mythology. The interconnected stories that form this novel take place in a Madrid as exotic as the Baghdad of the 1001 Arabian Nigbts and feature unforgettable characters in revol t against their young "author." "For them," he complains, "reality is what fiction is to real people; they simply love it and make for it against my almost heroic opposition. By the end of this book my characters are no longer a tool for my expression, but I am a helpless instrument of their whims and absurd contretemps. . In short, my characters have taken seriously the saying that 'truth is stranger than fiction' and I have failed in my attempts to convince them of the contrary." These fables of identity are enchanting despite Alfau's frequent reminders that these are mere puppets, figures of the imagination; nor can the reader fail to find, despite Alfau's mock warning, "beneath a more or less entertaining comedy of meaningless gestures, the vulgar aspects of a common tragedy." First published in 1936 and undeservedly neglected for the last fifty years, Locos anticipated the "magic realism" of the Latin Americans as well as the inventions of such later writers as Jorge Luis Borges, Flann O'Brien. John Barth, and Donald Barthelrne. Modern readers are now in a better position to appreciate Alfau's ingenurty and art, and to wonder how such a book, whose place in modern fiction is now so clear, could have gone unrecognized for so many years. Mary McCarthy, one of the original reviewers of locos, has written an afterword for this new edition. FELIPE ALFAU was born in 1902 in Guernica, Spain. He emigrated to the United Stares during World War I, where he studied music and wrote music criticism for a brief period for La Prensa; the Spanish newspaper in New York. Deciding to write in English because he felt he could not reach a Spanish audience, be completed Locos in 1928, which took eight years to find a publisher. In 1929 Doubleday published a children's book of his, Old Tales from Spain. After the publication of Locos, Alfau gave up writing and 'worked in a bank in New York City as a translator. He now lives in retirement in New York City. Seller Inventory # 3301201
