Most widely held works by Ana María Shua
The book of memories by Ana María Shua( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 448 libraries worldwide
From the assorted perspectives of these and other characters, this tale of Jewish immigrants explores life in Argentina, the role of women, and the power and the limits of machismo and nationalism
Death as a side effect by Ana María Shua( Book )
21 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 390 libraries worldwide
"In Death as a Side Effect, Ana María Shua's brilliantly dark satire transports readers to a dystopic future Argentina where gangs of ad hoc marauders and professional thieves roam the streets while the wealthy purchase security behind fortified concrete walls and the elderly cower in their apartments in fear of being whisked off to state-mandated "convalescent" homes, never to return. Abandoned by his mistress, suffocated by his father, and estranged from his demented mother and ineffectual sister, Ernesto seeks his vanished lover. Hoping to save his dying father from the ministrations of a diabolical health-care system, he discovers that, ultimately, everyone is a patient, and the instruments wielded by the impersonal medical corps cut to the very heart of the social fabric. The world of this novel, with its closed districts, unsafe travel, ubiquitous security cameras, and widespread artificiality and uncertainty, is as familiar as it is strange -- and as instructive, in its harrowing way, as it is deeply entertaining. The Spanish edition has been selected by the Congreso de la Lengua Española as one of the one hundred best Latin American novels published in the last twenty-five years."--Publisher

A humerous satire on the state's health care system, novel may remind readers of Ken Kesey's One flew over the cuckoo's nest. No accompanying materials, which is unfortunate since Shua's work is not yet well known in English"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
The weight of temptation by Ana María Shua( Book )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 237 libraries worldwide
Dystopian fantasy, political parable, morality tale-however one reads it, this novel is first and foremost pure Ana María Shua, a work of fiction like no other and a dark pleasure to read. Shua, an Argentinian writer widely celebrated throughout Latin America, frames her complex drama in deceptively simple, straightforward prose. The story takes place at a fat farm called The Reeds, a nightmare world that might not exist but certainly could. The last resort of the overweight wealthy (or sponsored), The Reeds subjects its "campers" to extreme measures-particularly the regimented system of publi
