Product Description

First published in English in 1972, and long out of print. A brilliant, intricate surreal perspective of the so-called 'City.' One of the novel's main characters, an intellectual named Juan puts it that, to one person the City might appear as Paris; to another it might be where one ventures upon getting out of bed in Barcelona; to another it might appear as a beer hall in Oslo. In the words of Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes, the book represents a cityscape that 'seems drawn up by the Marx Brothers with an assist from Bela Lugosi!' One of the more headventursome works in all of recent literature. A New Directions Classic. 281p. Pap.
