By Adolfo Bioy Casares

A brand new translation the the identify tale is out there via NYRB, and will be came upon on bibliotik. For an unknown cause, NYRB's version purely translated the name tale (albeit the main well-known of the collection). This variation comprises a number of extra stories.

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.
