Product description

Review

Aira continues to surprise and delight in his latest release from New Directions, which collects two novellas...There are a number of similarities to be sure--they both revolve around the sudden but intense relationship between three characters, they both take place over the course of less than twenty-four hours, they are both, at turns, wildly funny.--The Little Buddhist Monk & The Proof (08/08/2017)

Uncanny imagination à la Calvino.--Laura Pearson

New novellas from Aira are always a cause for celebration.--Brian Evenson

Aira's novels parody narrative form, destroy normal cause and effect, and contain bold conceptual dialogues.--Michael Eaude

Irreverent inventiveness ... without analogue in contemporary literature.--Megan Doll

South America's answer to Haruki Murakami.--Andrew Irvin

Aira delivers one surreal unraveling of reality after another that proceeds paradox by paradox into psychic realms.--Michael Upchurch

Cesar Aira is wild. The laws of gravity do not apply.--James S.A. Correy
