La otra. Un trabajo realmente impecable. Ni una burbuja, ni una rebaba que interrumpiera el engarce perfecto entre el medio cristalino y el opaco.

Es un detector. In place of the war hero, these works present instead rogues and anti-heroes. In this sense, the novel also formulates the possibility of deconstructing the traditional heroes, the protagonists of the epics, replacing it not with an empty space but with the depiction of a new kind of heroism, one that emerges from the farce and attempts to rewrite the image of the Argentine soldiers that fought in the war.

Litro Magazine review by Bella Whittington: You might be thinking that this sounds completely brilliant—a kind of surreal, Borgesian thriller; or you might be thinking that it sounds completely unreadable—a slippery, unrealistic plot in which nothing will stay still long enough for you to grasp what on earth is going on.

First book in said book club. Akinojinn Virtual realities, it seems, are more comforting than actual reality. No es el criminal el que vuelve al lugar del crimen.

Unaccustomed to writing on his own, Fletcher must find a new partner, and at this point the main actor and leader of the company, Richard Burbage, asks him to team up with Will Shakespeare, who after The Tempest seems to have lost all power and desire to write for the stage. Obliged to settle for second best, Fletcher approaches the much-admired, but now rather intractable playwright with the recently translated Don Quixote, and suggests they work on the story of Cardenio, a young Spanish gentleman who goes mad when his bride is stolen by his best friend. Twenty years later, Fefe, a child at the time of the murder, returns to the town where Dario met his fate and attempts to discover how the community let such a crime happen. Lies, excuses and evasion ensue — desperate attempts to deny the guilty secret of which the whole community, even Fefe himself, is afraid. Buenos Aires, Rejecting the mission is not an option.
