Home— Paris, France. Fiction writer and journalist. As a son of Syrian immigrants to South America living in his adopted France, Saer has gone on to write a group of novels that, inspired by and yet breaking with the traditions established by other Argentinian writers such as Jorge Luis Borges , have been "freed" due to their author's self-imposed exile, "from the narrowness of much of what has been written" in Argentina in the late twentieth century. According to Caistor, Saer has been free to experiment with his own literary style, and has become known for his "bold, probing use of the Spanish language.

Apr 30, Sonnet Fitzgerald rated it really liked it. Renan Virginio marked it as to-read Aug 04, Could have been so much better as the premise was facsinating. Their trip, which ends in disaster and fire, is a brilliant tragicomedy thanks to the various insanities of the patients, among whom is a delusional man who greatly over-estimates his own importance and a nymphomaniac nun who tricks everyone—even the other patients—into sleeping with her. Saer handles the sad plight of the mentally ill in the 19th century with sympathy as he describes their illnesses which are little understood in that time period. Real is given the task of going to Santa Fe to collect five of the patients that will be treated in the clinic.
