The Russian Doll and Other Stories

By Adolfo Bioy Casares

Adolfo Bioy Casares is a part of a mythical trio of Argentine buddies and authors: Silvina Ocampo (his spouse) and Jorge Luis Borges. they've got all collaborated in a single means or one other on literary endeavors.

If you're a fan of Borges, I hugely recommend having a look into the works of Bioy Casares and Ocampo.

A couple editorial reviews....

From Publishers Weekly
This choice of conventional and experimental tales through Argentinian novelist Bioy Casares ( The Adventures of a Photographer in l. a. Plata ) deals refined, seamless prose, in addition to magical realism and biting political satire. His characters are prompted through lust, avarice and conceit yet elicit sympathy due to their vulnerability. within the identify tale, a fortune hunter joins an ecological excursion in pursuit of a millionaire's daughter; however the father is swallowed by way of a tremendous pollution-feeding caterpillar, and while the daughter takes over her father's manufacturing facility, she renounces her former ecological stance. In one other tale, a notary public improving from hepatitis remains close to a lake and meets physician Salmon's niece, who asks him to end up his love for her by way of letting her uncle remodel them either into fish. the various tales are fantasies, frequently centering on surprising events--an actor is shot via supporters of a dictatorship for enjoying a republican who cries, "Oh liberty!" and an angelic-looking woman breakfasts on her mom and dad after being given an urge for food stimulant. all through Casares surprises and entertains in those suspenseful tales.

From Library Journal
This choice of seven tales via the Argentinean writer and protege of Borges shows many parts corresponding to his mentor's kind. The identify tale, "A Russian Doll," finds the unforeseen destiny of a guy who permits himself to be engulfed through greed in pursuit of a prosperous heiress at odds together with her father. Like Russian nesting dolls, the characters during this and within the different tales demonstrate hidden reasons and submerged existences while their surfaces are peeled away. lots of the tales comprise surrealistic parts, but Casares additionally tackles critical concerns comparable to censorship of inventive expression in a repressive society ("Cato") and prejudice ("The Navigator Returns to His Country"). even though the author's paintings has been translated formerly, he has now not but received huge attractiveness within the usa, and he benefits better cognizance. This consultant assortment might be of curiosity to educational and public libraries.
