Luis Fernando Verissimo; Translated by Margaret Jull Costa
R222 R195 Discovery Miles 1 950 Save R27 (12%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

A frustrated publisher receives a mysterious angst-ridden manuscript: 'a friend' must send it in installments; its contents would put the author in danger. As he pieces together the story, he learns that the author is the wife of one of the two Martelli brothers - gangsters who dominate a small town in the Brazilian interior. Surely her dark outpourings are a cry for help? One by one, he dispatches his motley collection of friends to Frondosa - a town totally obsessed with five-a-side football - to investigate and to bring her to safety.

Borges and The Eternal Orangutans (Paperback): Margaret Jull Costa, Luis Fernando Verissimo Borges and The Eternal Orangutans (Paperback)
Margaret Jull Costa, Luis Fernando Verissimo
R342 R319 Discovery Miles 3 190 Save R23 (7%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Vogelstein is a loner who has always lived among books. Suddenly, fate grabs hold of his insignificant life and carries him off to Buenos Aires, to a conference on Edgar Allan Poe, the inventor of the modern detective story. There Vogelstein meets his idol, Jorge Luis Borges, and for reasons that a mere passion for literature cannot explain, he finds himself at the center of a murder investigation that involves arcane demons, the mysteries of the Kaballah, the possible destruction of the world, and the Elizabethan magus John Dee's theory of the "Eternal Orangutan," which, given all the time in the world, would end up writing all the known books in the cosmos. Verissimo's small masterpiece is at once a literary tour de force and a brilliant mystery novel.
