When her desperate but foxy husband brings Europe's leading embalmer to Eva's deathbed to make her immortal, the fantastical comedy begins

"It is 2001, and inflation is spiraling out of control in Argentina as Bruno Cadogan, an American graduate student specializing in Borges, arrives in Buenos Aires. Cadogan is on the trail of Julio Martel, an elusive tango singer rumored to be even better than Carlos Gardel, the greatest singer of the 1920s and ?30s. Martel has never recorded and his strange, powerful performances, at seemingly arbitrary sites around the city, are always unannounced. Cadogan finds lodging in a boarding house rumored to be the setting of the famous Borges story "The Aleph," and soon finds himself drawn into the tangle of legends surrounding the singer's life. As the economic tension grows and the city hovers on the verge of riots, Bruno begins to believe that Martel's increasingly rare performances are in fact far from random?that they instead form a map of the darkest moments in the city's past."--Publisher's description

Purgatory : a novel by Tomás Eloy Martínez ( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Simón Cardoso had been dead thirty years when his wife, Emilia Dupuy, spotted him at lunchtime in the lounge bar in Trudy Tuesday. So begins Purgatory. Simón, a cartographer like Emilia, vanished during a trip to map an obscure road in Argentina's back country. Later, testimonies suggested that he was one of the thousands of "subversives" arrested, tortured, and executed by the military regime. Yet Emilia, daughter of the regime's chief propagandist, has refused to accept this. She has spent her life longing for Simón to return, following elusive leads, never giving up hope. The husband who reappears to her, however, has not suffered those same years of uncertainty; for him, no time has passed at all.--From back cover
Purgatorio by Tomás Eloy Martínez ( Book )
19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Spanish and German and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"En el invierno de 1976 Simón Cardoso es detenido por los militares que impusieron una dictadura sangrienta en la Argentina, y nunca más aparece. Treinta años más tarde, su mujer, Emilia Dupuy, se paraliza al oír su voz en una fonda de suburbio en New Jersey. El mundo, que se había desmoronado con la tragedia, recobra su luz. Excepto por un detalle: Simón sigue fijo en la juventud. El tiempo no ha transcurrido para él. A partir de ese enigma, Purgatorio enlaza la ansiedad del amor perdido y recuperado con una reconstrucción magistral de la irrealidad siniestra creada por el régimen. Sobre los mapas que trazaba esta pareja de cartógrafos se dibuja el de un horror invisible: no se muestran los campos de concentración sino la locura que los hizo posibles, en la que caben autopistas faraónicas, un mundial de fútbol y el patriotismo inflamado por una guerra insensata. La degradación moral va apoderándose de una sociedad que acepta como verdad única cada nueva invención del poder." --Contratapa

La Pasión según Trelew by Tomás Eloy Martínez ( Book )
13 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"En la madrugada del 22 de agosto de 1972, dieciséis guerrilleros detenidos en la base aeronaval Almirante Zar, de Trelew, fueron fusilados por sus carceleros, acusados de un intento de fuga. Tomás Eloy Martínez, entonces director del semanario Panorama, viajó a Trelew para reconstruir la verdad de los hechos. Al llegar se encontró con una de las rebeliones populares mas encendidas y secretas de la historia argentina. Ante una ofensiva militar que encarceló a un grupo de respetados ciudadanos, el pueblo se declaró en estado de vigilia y se movilizó para exigir la libertad de los cautivos. 'La Pasión Según Trelew' narra la masacre y la rebelión como una misma tragedia, uniendo documentos y personajes en un relato magnífico. Publicado por primera vez en 1973, prohibido a fines de ese año y quemado en una guarnición militar, llega hoy a los lectores en una nueva edición actualizada y corregida." --From publisher's description

Réquiem por un país perdido by Tomás Eloy Martínez ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in Spanish and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dos decadas atras, una ciudadanía hastiada de guerras, dictaduras, desapariciones, corrupcion e impunidad, celebraba en la Argentina el regreso de la democracia. El candidato que triunfaria en las elecciones solía recitar en el cierre de sus discursos de campana un fragmento del Preambulo de la Constitucion nacional. Tan poderosa era la ilusion renacida, tan firmes eran las esperanzas en el futuro. Veinte anos despues, es otra la Argentina que se nos revela. Un pais con filas interminables en las puertas de los consulados, vacio de casi todo menos de miseria, donde muchos -demasiados-, llevan tanto tiempo desvelados por sobrevivir que se han olvidado de vivir. De esas dos Argentinas habla este libro. Y de otras también, hechas con ficciones y espejismos, mitos, creencias y deseos, nostalgias, muertes y resurrecciones. Porque construir el futuro requiere comprender el presente y, sobre todo, dejar de negar el pasado
