I, the Supreme by Augusto Antonio Roa Bastos( Book )
239 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in 12 languages and held by 2,658 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Latin America has seen, time and again, the rise of dictators, Supreme Leaders possessed of the dream of absolute power, who sought to impose their mad visions of Perfect Order on their own people. Latin American writers, in turn, have responded with fictional portraits of such figures, and no novel of this genre is as universally esteemed as Augusto Roa Bastos's I the Supreme, a book that draws on and reimagines the career of the man who was "elected" Supreme Dictator for Life in Paraguay in 1814. By turns grotesque, comic, and strangely moving, I the Supreme is a profound meditation of the uses and abuses of power-over men, over events, over language itself
