A fascinating collection of short pieces, ranging from mysterious autobiographical moments (but are they in fact real?) to some lucid and penetrating essays on the short story. Piglia stands on the shoulders of those two giants, Borges and Arlt, from which he ventures even farther into the secret nexus of fiction and life. Some pieces demand to be read slowly or repeatedly to truly absorb the intoxicating brilliance of Piglia's vision. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 843392463X, Paperback)

El propio autor dice que los textos de este volumen pueden ser leidos como paginas perdidas en el diario de un escritor y tambien como los primeros ensayos y tentativas de una autobiografia futura». En este libro miscelaneo, el mas reciente de este gran escritor argentino convertido en referente de las jovenes generaciones, conviven el indispensable Borges y los excentricos Roberto Arlt, Macedonio Fernandez y Witold Gombrowicz, reflexiones sobre el cuento, fragmentos de un diario, esbozos de ficciones& Literatura al fin y al cabo, y del mas alto calado.
