About this product
- DescriptionA Russian Doll and Other Stories is the ninth collection of short fiction by one of this century's premier Argentinian writers who, with his fellow countrymen Julio Cortazar and Jorge Luis Borges, helped change the world's perception of Latin American literature. Bioy Casares's narratives are elegant and urbane, his style precise and streamlined, as he paces his characters through seriocomic traps of fate--ensnared by love, impelled by lust, ambition, or plain greed, even metamorphosed by pharmaceuticals. These are t stories in a psychological mode but like the image of the Russian doll of the title piece are carefully wrought congeries of intractable selves within selves.
- Author BiographyHaving translated Manuel Puig, Julio Cortazar, Adolfo Bioy Casares, Guillermo Cabrera Infante, and other notable authors, Suzanne Jill Levine is one of the most highly regarded translators of contemporary Latin American literature. She is a professor of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the author of The Subversive Scribe: Translating Latin American Fiction.
