Beschreibung

Born in the United States, Calvert Casey was raised in Cuba and spent most of his life there and in Europe. Spanish was his chosen language. This collection brings all of Casey's powerful short stories--mostly set in Havana--and a fragment of an unfinished novel to an English-speaking audience for the first time. Casey was a renegade artist whose work presents reality as a smoke screen behind which Truth is hidden.

Pressestimmen

"Casey's mildly tragic life and meagre oeuvre are being rediscovered by a new generation of Latin Americans, who've had enough of the magic realist/political masters and their sensual and linguistic excesses. A wholesale 'structural readjustment' has taken place within the culture: if Casey was obscured during the age of thick tomes, his economical, almost ecological restraint in dealing with both the gross and the infinitesimal now provides a precedent for younger writers, while the crucial ineptitude for living that he expresses is entirely appropriate for the disabled nineties." --LRB, 1 April 1999
