About this product
- DescriptionThe One Before is a collection of three interlinking stories from one of Argentina's greatest writers: a series of short pieces called Arguments and two longer stories - Half-Erased and The One Before, all of which revolve around the ideas of exile and memory. Many of the characters who populate Saer's other vels appear here, including Tomatis, Angel Leto, and Washington Noriega. Saer's typical themes are on display in this collection as well, as is his idiosyncratic blend of philosophical ruminations and precise storytelling.
- Author BiographyJuan Jose Saer was the leading Argentinian writer of the post-Borges generation. The author of numerous novels and short-story collections (including Scars and La Grande ), Saer was awarded Spain s prestigious Nadal Prize in 1987 for The Event.
