About this product
- DescriptionSet in Bues Aires, Lisbon, Vienna, Budapest and Odessa, both before and after the Second World War, Edgardo Cozarinsky's stories belong to the spirit of Borges and to a great Argentine cosmopolitan tradition: that of the uprooted exile, the plaything of History, who, set down in a strange but proud land, looks back stalgically to the Europe of his ancestral memories. Cozarinsky's characters are writers, lovers, scholars, artists and dreamers. An ambitious young Jew, about to marry and embark for a new life in Argentina is accosted by an unkwn woman who departs with him to Bues Aires; a pianist in a Bues Aires nightclub finds himself drawn back to Germany in 1937; an Argentine-American Jew travels to Lisbon to unravel the threads of his grandparents' wartime affair...They are all travellers of a kind, characters who inhabit a secret land, without frontiers.
- Author BiographyEdgardo Cozarinsky was born in Buenos Aires in 1939 and has lived in Paris since 1974. Best known for his subtle, semi-documentary films, he has also written a previous collection of short stories, Urban Voodoo; a novella, The Moldavian Pimp; and prize-winning essays.
