A giant of contemporary Latin American literature, Argentine novelist Ricardo Piglia’s secret magnum opus was a compilation of 327 notebooks that he composed over nearly six decades, in which he imagined himself as his literary alter ego, Emilio Renzi. A world-weary detective, Renzi stars in many of his creator's works, much like Philip Roth's Nathan Zuckerman. But the Renzi of these diaries is something more complex—a multilayered reconstruction of the self that is teased out over intricate, illuminating pages. As Piglia/Renzi develops as a reader and writer, falls in love, and tussles with his tyrannical father, we get eye-opening perspectives on Latin America’s tumultuous twentieth century. Obsessed with literary giants—from Borges and Cortázar (both of whom he knew), to Kafka and Camus—The Diaries comprise a celebration of reading as a vital, existential activity. When Piglia learned he had a fatal illness in 2011, he raced to complete his mysterious masterwork as rumors about the book intensified among his many fans. First released in Spanish as a trilogy to tremendous applause, The Diaries of Emilio Renzi cements Piglia’s place in the global canon. “[A] masterpiece.… everything written by Ricardo Piglia, which we read as intellectual fabrications and narrated theories, was partially or entirely lived by Emilio Renzi. The visible, cerebral chronicles hid a secret history that was flesh and bones.” —Jorge Carrión, The New York Times “A valediction from the noted Argentine writer, known for bringing the conventions of hard-boiled U.S. crime drama into Latin American literature...Fans of Cortázar, Donoso, and Gabriel García Márquez will find these to be eminently worthy last words from Piglia.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review “When young Ricardo Piglia wrote the first pages of his diaries, which he would work on until the last years of his life, did he have any inkling that they would become a lesson in literary genius and the culmination of one of the greatest works of Argentine literature?” —Samanta Schweblin, author of Fever Dream “Ricardo Piglia, who passed away earlier this year at age seventy-five, is celebrated as one of the giants of Argentine literature, a rightful heir to legends like Borges, Cortázar, Juan Jose Saer, and Roberto Arlt. The Diaries of Emilio Renzi is his life's work...An American equivalent might be if Philip Roth now began publishing a massive, multi-volume autobiography in the guise of Nathan Zuckerman…It is truly a great work...This is a fantastic, very rewarding read—it seems that Piglia has found a form that can admit everything he has to say about his life, and it is a true pleasure to take it in.” —Scott Esposito, BOMB Magazine “His death left us, his many Hispanic readers, feeling orphaned.” —Valeria Luiselli, author of The Story of My Teeth "Here through the Boom and Bolaño breech storms Ricardo Piglia, not just a great Latin American writer but a great writer of the American continent. Composed across his entire career, The Diaries of Emilio Renzi is Piglia's secret story of his shadow self—a book of disquiet and love and literary obsession that blurs the distinctness of each and the other." —Hal Hlavinka, Community Bookstore (Brooklyn, NY) “In this fictionalized autobiography, Piglia’s ability to succinctly criticize and contextualize major writers from Kafka to Flannery O’Connor is astounding, and the scattering of those insights throughout this diary are a joy to read. This book is essential reading for writers.” —Publishers Weekly “The Diaries of Emilio Renzi is a rare glimpse into the heart of twentieth-century Latin American literature, with the inimitable Ricardo Piglia as tour guide. More than just a traditional diary, Renzi is an illuminating voyage into the hearts of books and writers and history. An inspiring work and an important achievement.” —Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore (Houston, TX) "The best Latin American writer to have appeared since the heyday of Gabriel García Márquez." —Kirkus Reviews “The great Argentine writer…. In a career that spanned four decades, during which he became one of Latin America’s most distinctive literary voices.” —Alejandro Chacoff, The New Yorker

A giant of contemporary Latin American literature, Argentine novelist Ricardo Piglia was known for stories, novels, operas, screenplays, and essays, but his magnum opus is a compilation of 327 secret notebooks. In these diaries composed over nearly six decades, Piglia imagined himself as his literary alter ego, Emilio Renzi. Like Philip Roth’s Nathan Zuckerman, Renzi stars in many of his creator’s works—perhaps most notably in Piglia’s 1981 novel about Argentina’s Dirty War, Artificial Respiration. In the novels, Renzi is a detective; in the notebooks that comprise The Diaries of Emilio Renzi, he is something more complex—a multilayered reconstruction of the self that is teased out over these intricate, illuminating pages. As Piglia/Renzi develops as a reader and writer, falls in love, and tussles with his tyrannical father, we get eye-opening perspectives on Latin America’s tumultuous twentieth century. Obsessed with the literary giants—from Borges andCortázar (both of whom he knew), to Kafka and Camus—The Diaries comprise a celebration of reading as a vital, existential activity. In 2011, when Piglia learned he had a fatal illness, he raced to complete his mysterious masterwork as rumors about the book intensified among his many fans.

Un día en la vida culmina la publicación de Los diarios de Emilio Renzi, que ponen un broche de oro a la producción literaria de uno de los escritores fundamentales de las letras latinoamericanas. Esta última entrega completa el autorretrato de Piglia a través del personaje interpuesto de su álter ego. Sigue aquí la exploración de un periplo vital y creativo, la indagación en la escritura y sus mecanismos, la reflexión sobre la literatura a través de lecturas muy diversas. Y asoman encuentros, películas, la convulsa situación política argentina, la tarea profesoral en Estados Unidos... Este volumen se divide en tres bloques: el primero, «Los años de la peste», es la última parte de los diarios de Renzi, fechada entre 1976 y 1982; el segundo, «Un día en la vida», es una narración en la que Renzi cede la palabra y se convierte en personaje contado en tercera persona, y el tercero, «Días sin fecha», reúne anotaciones de los últimos años, en las que se evocan instantes de felicidad, la última clase en Princeton y la aparición de la enfermedad que de modo lento pero implacable impone su ley. Se cierra, pues, de forma ya póstuma la aventura literaria de Emilio Renzi. Con ella Ricardo Piglia deja escrita una obra diarística destinada a convertirse en un clásico imprescindible del género en lengua castellana, que desde la publicación del primer volumen ha generado la reacción entusiasta de lectores y críticos.

The stories in Assumed Name, written before the 1976 military coup d'etat in Argentina, invoke a stark socio-political situation that foreshadows the repressive dictatorship that the country was to suffer from 1976 to 1983. But the plight of the marginalized characters in these stories is also a universal one, as they search for ways to communicate and live with each other, and to come to terms with the reality in which they find themselves. "Assumed Name", the novella which gives its title to the collection, is a unique and fascinating piece - doubling at times as literary criticism - reminiscent of the style exemplified by Jorge Luis Borges' work. The author himself is the protagonist attempting to solve the mystery of an unpublished manuscript allegedly written by the Argentine writer Roberto Arlt.

Este segundo volumen de los tres que compondrán los diarios de Emilio Renzi, álter ego de Ricardo Piglia, recorre el periodo que va de 1968 a 1975. Si en el anterior asistíamos a la forja del escritor en ciernes, aquí se desarrolla su carrera en el mundo de las letras argentinas con la dirección de una revista, los trabajos editoriales, los artículos, los cursos y conferencias. La pasión, la obsesión por la literatura se materializa en ideas y esbozos para cuentos y novelas, lecturas, encuentros con escritores consagrados –Borges, Puig, Roa Bastos, Piñera...– y compañeros de generación, reflexiones sobre la escritura y sobre la obra de autores clásicos y novelistas policiacos, descubrimientos, búsquedas y deslumbramientos. Y también aparecen los viajes, la vida íntima y amorosa, y la Argentina de unos años convulsos: el fallecimiento de Perón, la emergencia de grupos guerrilleros, el golpe militar... En el texto que abre el libro a modo de prólogo, Renzi, acodado en la barra de un bar, conversa con el barman y confiesa: «Escribo un diario, y los diarios sólo obedecen a la progresión de los días, los meses y los años. No hay otra cosa que pueda definir un diario, no es el material autobiográfico, no es la confesión íntima, ni siquiera es el registro de la vida de una persona, lo define, sencillamente, que lo escrito se ordene por los días de la semana y los meses del año. Eso es todo. Uno puede escribir cualquier cosa (...), como es mi caso, una mezcla inesperada de detalles o encuentros con amigos o testimonios de acontecimientos vividos (...) esos descubrimientos, esas fugas, esos momentos confusos han sido, para mí, puntos de viraje, y sobre ellos construí la periodización de mi vida.» Y así, este nuevo volumen de los diarios de Emilio Renzi sigue explorando las vivencias, las incertidumbres y las reflexiones literarias de un escritor y da forma, en palabras del autor, a «la novela de una vida». El primer volumen, escogido mejor libro del 2015 por los críticos de Babelia y entre los mejores por los de El Cultural y los de El Periódico, cosechó elogios unánimes: «Entre el asombro y el descubrimiento, Emilio Renzi es el mejor Piglia» (Iván Thays).

The second installment of Argentine literary giant Ricardo Piglia’s acclaimed bibliophilic trilogy follows his alter ego, Emilio Renzi, as his literary career begins to take off in the tumultuous years 1968-1975—running a magazine, working as a publisher, and encountering the literary stars among whom he would soon take his place: Borges, Puig, Roa Bastos, Piñera. “One writes,” Ricardo Piglia asserts, only “in order to know literature.” Spanning the years 1968 to 1975, The Diaries of Emilio Renzi: The Happy Years is a testament to Piglia’s intimate, lifelong love affair with the written word. This second installment of the Argentinian master’s diaries opens a window into a luminous literary community fertile with genius and ever-traipsing from bar to bar—as well as into a convulsing Argentina racked by the death of Perón, guerilla warfare, and a bloody military coup—and establishes itself as the definitive backbone of Piglia’s monumental career.

Under the one title 'Naked Woman' are brought together two plays by the critically acclaimed Garry O'Connor. The first, 'Semmelweis', is a victim play in the Tennessee Williams tradition, and the second, 'De Raptu Meo', is a theatrical re-creation of English poet Geoffrey Chaucer and his times. Semmelweis is from the start in a trap set by his own character and his overriding passion for truth. But his is a story of crushing disappointment, having parallels today, especially in medicine. To see flaws in the system, and to speak out against cover-ups and vested interest, invites pariah status and a ruthless sweeping aside in the relentless drive for conformity and profit. 'De Raptu Meo', as Libby Purves pointed out in her review, exposes the relativity of truth we find in contemporary culture, which she has contrasted with events surrounding English poet Geoffrey Chaucer, who faced, in Richard II's reign, the accusation of rape. Present society is awash with stories of sexual abuse as no other age has been. Here is a take on that subject, with the audience asked to participate in Chaucer's trial as if the jury, and at the end give a verdict as to whether or not he was guilty of the crime. 'Semmelweis' was first performed at the Edinburgh Festival, and 'De Raptu Meo' had its first reading in Inner Temple, with Derek Jacobi in the part of Geoffrey Chaucer, and its first full performance in the same venue with Ian Hogg in the lead role.

The award-winning and haunting novel from Rodrigo Hasbún, the literary star Jonathan Safran Foer calls, “a great writer,” about an unusual family’s breakdown—set in South America during the time of Che Guevara and inspired by the life of Third Reich cinematographer Hans Ertl. Inspired by real events, Affections is the story of the eccentric, fascinating Ertl clan, headed by the egocentric and extraordinary Hans, once the cameraman for the Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl. Shortly after the end of World War II, Hans and his family flee to Bolivia to start over. There, the ever-restless Hans decides to embark on an expedition in search of the fabled lost Inca city of Paitití, enlisting two of his daughters to join him on his outlandish quest into the depths of the Amazon, with disastrous consequences. “A one-sitting tale of fragmented relationships with a broad scope, delivered with grace and power” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), Affections traces the Ertls’s slow and inevitable breakdown through the various erratic trajectories of each family member: Hans’s undertakings of colossal, foolhardy projects and his subsequent spectacular failures; his daughter Monika, heir to his adventurous spirit, who joins the Bolivian Marxist guerrillas and becomes known as “Che Guevara’s avenger”; and his wife and two younger sisters left to pick up the pieces in their wake. “Hasbún writes with patience and precision, revealing the family’s most intimate thoughts and interactions: first smokes, blind love, and familial devotion. This is a novel to savor for its richness and grace and its historical and political scope” (Booklist, starred review)—a masterfully layered tale of how a family’s voyage of discovery ends up eroding the affections that once held it together.

Between 1870 and 1930, Latin American countries were incorporated into global capitalist networks like never before, mainly as exporters of raw materials and importers of manufactured goods. Capital Fictions investigates literature's key role in imagining and interpreting the rapid transformations unleashed by Latin America's first major wave of capitalist modernization. Using an innovative blend of literary and economic analysis and drawing from a rich interdisciplinary archive, Ericka Beckman provides the first extended evaluation of Export Age literary production. She traces the emergence of a distinct set of fictions, fantasies, and illusions that accompanied the rise of export-led, dependent capitalism. These "capital fictions" range from promotional pamphlets to Guatemalan coffee and advertisements for French fashions to novels about the stock market collapse in Argentina and rubber extraction in the Amazon. Questioning the opposition between culture and economics in Latin America and elsewhere, Capital Fictions shows that literature operated as a powerful form of political economy during this period. -- Back cover.
