The invention of Morel; and other stories from La trama celeste by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )
246 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 2,469 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Jorge Luis Borges declared The Invention of Morel a masterpiece of plotting, comparable to The Turn of The Screw and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Set on a mysterious island, Bioy's novella is a story of suspense and exploration, as well as a wonderfully unlikely romance, in which every detail is at once crystal clear and deeply mysterious. Inspired by Bioy Casares's fascination with the movie star Louise Brooks, The Invention of Morel has gone on to live a secret life of its own. Greatly admired by Julio Cortazar, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Octavio Paz, the novella helped to usher in Latin American fiction's now famous postwar boom. As the model for Alain Resnais and Alain Robbe-Grillet's Last Year in Marienbad, it also changed the history of film
Asleep in the sun by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )
58 editions published between 1973 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 1,075 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Lucio, a normal man in a normal (nosy) city neighborhood with normal problems with his wife (not the easiest person to get along with) and family and job (he lost it) finds he has a much bigger problem: his wife is a dog. At first, it doesn't seem like such a problem, because the German shepherd inhabiting his wife's body is actually a good deal more agreeable than his wife herself, now occupying the body of the same German shepherd in a mental hospital run by scientists who, it appears, have designs on the whole neighborhood. But then Lucio has a sense, however confused, of what's right, which is an even bigger problem yet. Asleep in the Sun is the great work of the Argentine master Adolfo Bioy Casares's later years. Like his legendary Invention of Morel, it is an intoxicating mixture of fantasy, sly humor, and menace. Whether read as a fable of modern politics, a meditation on the elusive parameters of the self, or a most unusual love story, Bioy's book is an almost scarily perfect comic turn, as well as a pure delight

"Autobiografía. Narrada en base a anécdotas entretenidas ilustrada, en un registro diferente, el hábil manejo de la prosa que caracteriza al autor. A los recuerdos de juventud siguen los de amistades, comentarios de lecturas y viajes. Ocupan un lugar especial los gustos compartidos con Silvina Ocampo y Borges, así como los 'desecuentros' divertidos con Victoria Ocampo. En sección aparte figuran 'Historia de mi familia' que detalla su genealogía e 'Historia de mis libros' de gran valor para el estudio y comprensión de su obra"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Borges by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 55 libraries worldwide
Durante cinco décadas de amistad y complicidad literaria, Adolfo Bioy Casares visitó infinidad de veces a Jorge Luis Borges. Este libro es el diario que Bioy fue escribiendo sobre esos encuentros entre 1947 y 1989. El resultado es el retrato más completo y más íntimo de Borges jamás presentado a los lectores y la crónica minuciosa y deliciosa de una amistad legendaria. Bioy y Borges fueron amigos entrañables y compañeros de aventuras literarias. Durante años se reunían todos los días: escribían juntos, trabajaban juntos, paseaban, veraneaban y comían juntos. Con discreción pero con la puntillosidad y la constancia de quien sabe qué está destinado a hacer un aporte fundamental, Bioy anotaba sus impresiones, los diálogos, las consideraciones de su amigo sobre escritores clásicos y contemporáneos, sobre el amor, la amistad, los sueños, la muerte, Dios, el destino, la filosofía, la comida, las mujeres, la política, las costumbres de su época, la idiosincrasia de los pueblos. El presente libro es reflejo de ese intercambio que enriqueció a uno y otro, y torció para siempre el rumbo de la literatura en español. El relato por parte de Bioy de aspectos poco conocidos de la vida de Borges, la transmisión precisa de sus ideas originales y brillantes, el dibujo de su personalidad, en general poco conocida o poco evidente, quedan plasmados en este libro como es posible que no logre hacerlo ninguna biografía. En ese sentido, Bioy Casares es el interlocutor perfecto, como un tamiz hecho a medida para que se luciera la inteligencia del amigo, para dialogar con él en condiciones de igualdad y transmitirlo al papel con talento inigualable
L'invention de Morel roman by Adolfo Bioy Casares( Book )
6 editions published between 1952 and 2004 in French and held by 51 libraries worldwide
"Un homme en fuite trouve refuge sur une île déserte. Un lieu étrange, dominé par une villa immense et somptueuse dont les sous-sols recèlent une machinerie aux fonctions incompréhensibles. L'île, pourtant, n'est pas si déserte qu'elle l'a semblé de prime abord. Des estivants, réunis sur place par un certain Morel, s'engagent dans une fête languide dont le rituel paraît se reproduire à l'infini." [Source : 4e de couv., tirage 2012]
