Most widely held works by Juan Rodolfo Wilcock
The temple of Iconoclasts by Juan Rodolfo Wilcock( Book )
19 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 246 libraries worldwide
"From an armchair in England, Rosenblum hatches a complicated plot to return the world to the year 1580-reintroducing ruffs, doublets, codpieces, and sundry period diseases. By sheer force of will, Littlefield discovers that he's able to crystallize table salt into the shapes of "chickens and other small animals." Babson founds an international organization with the declared aim of annulling the law of gravity. These are only a few of the dozens of eccentrics, visionaries, and downright crackpots who populate the pages of Juan Rodolfo Wilcock's charming fiction in the form of a biographical dictionary. Temple's brief portraits blend mordant satire and profound imaginative sympathy, taking in the whole dazzling spectrum of human folly-including a handful of colors that only Wilcock's Swiftian eye could possibly have perceived"--

Fowler, a seasoned foreign correspondent, intervenes as the young Pyle begins to channel economic aid to a 'Third Force, ' "but Fowler's motives for intervening are suspect, both to the police and to himself: for Pyle has robbed him of his Vietnamese mistress."--Penguin pbk. cover
El caos by Juan Rodolfo Wilcock( Book )
12 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in Spanish and Italian and held by 81 libraries worldwide
"Desde el tenue aviso con que Wilcock le advierte en dedicatoria privada a Silvina Ocampo hasta el adverso milagro de su recepción en 1974, cuando se publica la primera vez, El caos es uno de los referentes más importantes y vivos de la narrativa argentina, como El juguete rabioso, La invención de Morel y Ficciones. A eso contribuye su condición de libro de cuentos inestable. Todo en El caos permanece en estado de transformación: los personajes, las tramas, las escenas, las situaciones y, sobre todo, la lengua. Esa vibración previa, esa inminencia, insinúa el escritor que Wilcock será, y abarca ya la obra futura: El estereoscopio de los solitarios, El ingeniero, La sinagoga de los iconoclastas. Tanto si se trata de un magnicidio, de una fiesta depravada, de unos animales voraces y fantásticos que acechan en el parque Lezama o de un recuerdo de juventud, Wilcock sostiene con su estilo una diversidad de mundos y criaturas que perduran sin ambages en la memoria de los lectores."--Casadellibro

Letters to Milena by Franz Kafka( Book )
17 editions published between 1955 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 34 libraries worldwide
In no other work does Franz Kafka reeal himself as in Letters to Milena, which begins as a business correspondence but soon develops into a passionate but doomed epistolary love affair. Kafka's Czech translator, Milena Jesenska was a gifted and charismatic twenty-three-year-old who was uniquely able to recognize Kafka's complex genius and his even more complex character. For the thrity-six-year-old Kafka, she was "a living fire, such as I have never seen." It was to Milena that he revealed his most intimate self and, eventually, entrusted his diaries for safekeeping. "The voice of Kafka in Letters to Milena is more personal, more pure, and more painful than in his fiction: a testimony to human existence and to our eternal wait for the impossible. A marvelous new edition of a classic text." 'Jan Kott
