A modernist city novel within the culture of James Joyce, Adam Buenosayres is a tour-de-force that does for Buenos Aires what Carlos Fuentes did for Mexico urban or José Lezama Lima did for Havana - chronicles a urban teeming with lifestyles in all its smart and crass, impolite and clever varieties. using various literary types and a number of voices, Leopoldo Marechal parodies and celebrates Argentina's such a lot superb literary and creative iteration, the martinfierristas of the Twenties, between them Jorge Luis Borges.

First released in 1948 through the polarizing reign of Juan Perón, the radical was once hailed through Julio Cortázar as a unprecedented occasion in twentieth-century Argentine literature. Set over the process 3 break-neck days, Adam Buenosayres follows the protagonist via an obvious metaphysical awakening, a conflict for his soul fought by means of angels and demons, and a descent via a spot comparable to a comic book model of Dante's hell.

Presenting either a panoramic translation and thorough explanatory notes, Norman Cheadle captures the unlimited language of Marechal's unique and courses the reader alongside an unequalled trip during the tradition of Buenos Aires. This first-ever English translation brings to gentle Marechal's masterwork with an creation outlining the novel's significance in a number of contexts - Argentine, Latin American, and global literature - and with notes illuminating its literary, cultural, and historic references.

A salient function of the Argentine canon, Adam Buenosayres is either a path-breaking novel and a key textual content for figuring out Argentina's cultural and political history.
