On the Edge is a monumental fresco of a brutal contemporary Spain in free fall On the Edge opens with the discovery of a rotting corpse in the marshes on the outskirts of Olba, Spain—a town wracked by despair after the burst of the economic bubble, and a microcosm of a world of defeat, debt, and corruption. Stuck in this town is Esteban—his small factory bankrupt, his investments stolen by a “friend,” and his unloved father, a mute invalid, entirely his personal burden. Much of the novel unfolds in Esteban’s raw and tormented monologues. But other voices resound from the wreckage—soloists stepping forth from the choir—and their words, sharp as knives, crowd their terse, hypnotic monologues of ruin, prostitution, and loss. Chirbes alternates this choir of voices with a majestic third-person narration, injecting a profound and moving lyricism and offering the hope that a new vitality can emerge from the putrid swamps. On the Edge, even as it excoriates, pulsates with robust life, and its rhythmic, torrential style marks the novel as an indelible masterpiece.

"Winner of Chile’s Literary Critics’ Award for Best Novel" Hailed as a great Latin American literary event, this stylistically innovative, elliptically told tale of a young man and his love who mysteriously disappears is, as the narrator tells us, “a simple story that becomes complicated.” Through both the distance and closeness of these young lovers, Alejandro Zambra brilliantly explores the relationship between art, love, and life. Bonsai is accessible yet profound—as one critic in Chile’s Capital newspaper put it, “Brief as a sigh and forceful as a blow.”

La representación de la comunicación oral en los textos escritos se encuentra actualmente en la encrucijada de varias disciplinas científicas dedicadas al estudio del lenguaje y de sus productos culturales (lingüística, antropología, sociología, historia de la literatura, etc.). En lingüística el (re-) descubrimiento de la oralidad ha empezado a minar la tradicional certidumbre sobre la preeminencia de la lengua escrita y a provocar una revisión de muchos conceptos gramaticales nunca cuestionados. Los estudiosos de la literatura conocía, desde hacía tiempo, fenómenos conexos, como el género del diálogo literario, la inserción de diálogos en el relato o el coloquialismo de estos últimos, que a veces impregna también el discurso del propio narrador.

El hallazgo de un cadáver en el pantano de Olba pone en marcha la narración. Su protagonista, Esteban, se ha visto obligado a cerrar la carpintería de la que era dueño, dejando en el paro a los que trabajaban para él. Mientras se encarga de cuidar a su padre, enfermo en fase terminal, Esteban indaga en los motivos de una ruina que asume en su doble papel de víctima y de verdugo, y entre cuyos escombros encontramos los valores que han regido una sociedad, un mundo y un tiempo. La novela nos obliga a mirar hacia ese espacio fangoso que siempre estuvo ahí, aunque durante años nadie parecía estar dispuesto a asumirlo, a la vez lugar de uso y abismo donde se han ocultado delitos y se han lavado conciencias privadas y públicas. Heredero de la mejor tradición del realismo, el estilo de En la orilla se sostiene por un lenguaje directo y un tono obsesivo que atrapa al lector desde la primera línea volviéndolo cómplice.

Translated by Gregory Rabassa, winner of the National Book Award for Translation, 1967 Horacio Oliveira is an Argentinian writer who lives in Paris with his mistress, La Maga, surrounded by a loose-knit circle of bohemian friends who call themselves "the Club." A child's death and La Maga's disappearance put an end to his life of empty pleasures and intellectual acrobatics, and prompt Oliveira to return to Buenos Aires, where he works by turns as a salesman, a keeper of a circus cat which can truly count, and an attendant in an insane asylum. Hopscotch is the dazzling, freewheeling account of Oliveira's astonishing adventures.
