DescriptionBest known as Jorge Luis Borges's right-hand man, Adolfo Bioy Casares (1914-1999) was, in his own right, an inventive writer of considerable skill. His works, often dismissed summarily as fantastic fiction, are now ripe for reassessment. This volume looks at Bioy's extensive oeuvre which offers many surprising reflections on the twentieth century's cultural, social and political transformations, both in Argentina and farther afield. Topics covered include Bioy's meditations on isolation and logic, and his enduring fascination with the impact of photography on all artistic representation.
