Jorge Luis Borges declared The Invention of Morel a masterpiece of plotting, comparable to The Turn of the Screw and Journey to .the Centre of the Earth. Set on a mysterious island, Bioy s novella is a story of suspense and exploration, as well as a wonderfully unlikely romance, in which every detail is at once crystal clear and deeply mysterious. Suzanne Jill Levine s revision of Ruth Simm s translation offers a fresh experience of an uncanny work of genius.Inspired by Bioy Casares s fascination with the movie star Louise Brooks, The Invention of Morel has gone on to live a secret life of its own. Greatly admired by Julio Cortazar, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Octavio Paz, the novella helped to usher in Latin American fiction s now famous postwar boom. As the model for Alain Renais and Alain Robbe-Grillet s Last Year in Marienbad, it also changed the history of film.
