Three novellas by one of the most idiosyncratic and unusual international writers today, packaged as an Essential for the first time.

Irreverent, playful and prolific, Argentinean author Cesar Aira has written over eighty books and has been acknowledged as one of the most enjoyable, provocative and original authors in world literature. Collected here are three of his most acclaimed novels, all typically short: a perfect introduction to the work of this addictively wonderful writer.
