Circle of Readers

Eduardo Berti

SHORT STORIES. PÁGINAS DE ESPUMA, 2020. 224 PAGES

What do books mean to us? What do readers mean to books? How, when and why do we read? Out of pleasure, compulsion, anxiety, or obsession? Do we organize our bookshelves or do they organize us? Do characters and authors establish a mutual, lifelong pact? Does the text translate the translator? Who edits the editor? A circle of readers, books and reads in a volatile, playful world: this is a real jewel from the Argentine writer Eduardo Berti at his most Oulipian. A book that explores the blurred boundaries between fiction and reality creating a game of mirrors between form, genre, theme and content, a paean to reading except that the words are off and the chorus is rather weird.
