Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a mysterious stranger arrives laden with paintings, Leandro finds his quiet life instantly and mysteriously disrupted. Awakening locked in a windowless room in a topless tower, he finds himself trapped—the subject in one of the strangers eerie paintings. Heavily influenced by nonsense literature such as Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland and the surrealist movement in South America, The Topless Tower features all the typical hallmarks of Silvina Ocampos fantastical writing. With subtle inflections of language and tremendous displays of imagination running riot, Ocampos writing is beautifully translated here by James Womack.
