Michael Orthofer runs the Complete Review — a book review site with a focus on international fiction — and its Literary Saloon weblog. Adam Buenosayres is a largely autobiographical novel set in s Buenos Aires — a time when Argentina was one of the wealthiest countries in the world and Marechal was part of the vibrant developing artistic scene. A character closely based on Jorge Luis Borges features in it.

As Marechal piles it on, the amount of material can get exhausting, but the sheer inventiveness — and the humor — consistently impress and entertain. This edition — the presentation of the novel-in-translation — is exemplary. Some of the longlisted books present just the translated texts themselves — which is often enough, or even preferable. Adam Buenosayres comes seriously annotated: there are close to seventy pages of endnotes along with a helpful introduction , and a nine-page bibliography.

This is one of those works where it is clear that the translator has engaged with the material not just for a few months but over a much more extended period of time. His translation reflects his great understanding of and familiarity with the author and the work. Despite the challenges the novel poses — from the use of dialect and the variety of forms Marechal plays with — the translation manages also to be an artistic and not just academic success — an exuberant, comic, and clever rendering.

For those who like their books big, expansive, far-reaching, Adam Buenosayres is the obvious choice. I have it on my bookshelf. It sits there intimidating me with its chunky colourful spine. I really need to book a two week holiday and attack it. Your email address will not be published. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. What is this book?

You must be joking! Thanks for sharing the good news! Thank you for the kind words! I wish I had more time to update this blog more frequently, but I will try my best to come up with something interesting once in a while. I was aware of the translation and had noted it on my website but, like you, I was surprised at the lack of publicity for it. I still think that you should review it.
