"Vogelstein is a loner who has always lived among books. Suddenly, fate grabs hold if his insignificant life and carries him off to Buenos Aires, to a conference on Edgar Allan Poe, the inventor of the modern detective story. There Vogelstein meets his idol, Jorge Luis Borges, and for reasons that a mere passion for literature cannot explain, he finds himself at the center of a murder investigation that involves arcane demons, the mysteries of the Kabbala, the possible destruction of the world, and the Elizabethan magus John Dee's "Eternal Orangutan," which, given all the time in the world, would end up writing all the known books in the cosmos."--BOOK JACKET

"Não é todo dia que se quer ouvir uma crocante fuga de Bach, mas todos os dias se quer comer. A fome é o único desejo reincidente, pois a visão acaba, a audição acaba, o sexo acaba, o poder acaba--mas a fome continua. 'O Clube dos Anjos' ... é uma insólita e bem-humorada celebração da guia. O livro conta a história de dez homens que se entregaram a esta afinidade animal, a fome em bando--sem temer a morte. Na verdade, a perspectiva de morrer só aumentaria, para eles, o prazer da comida e o desafio filosófico da gastronomia: a apreciação que exige a destruição do apreciado"--Publisher's description, back cover
