The Adventures and Misadventures of Maqroll (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)

by Alvaro Mutis

The Immortal Gaviero: Alvaro Mutis' Maqroll Adventures 2

I can think of no better way to honor both the man and his singular hero possessed of an “incurable wanderlust” and a “vocation for defeat” than by quoting the latter’s bathroom graffiti, bits of wisdom written by the Gaviero in his seclusion.

Staff Pick: Matthew Kneale's English Passengers 1

It's the sort of book that has you running for atlases and encyclopedias to try to learn by what alchemy the author has turned history into such invigorating fiction.
