Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The subject of fiction and life is a constant that, since distant times, has been expressed through literature. Yet in the work of no other modern author does it have the force and inventiveness as it does in the short stories of Juan Carlos Onetti. It is not an exaggeration to say that Onetti's work is almost entirely conceived to show the subtle and rich way in which human beings have built a parallel existence, made up of words and images as unreal as they are persuasive, to take refuge in when we want to escape the tragedies and limitations that real life imposes upon our freedom and dreams. In this essay, Vargas Llosa examines how Onetti used fiction to create an alternate reality, a reality in which the answer to our daily defeats is fleeing to a fantasy world.
