Über diesen Titel


A Modernist novel written at the age of 26 and published in 1936, which readers have compared with Nabokov, Calvino, Marquez and Borges. Comic yet surreal, the characters take on innumerable identities as they climb out of the fictitious world into the real.

From the Back Cover:

The interconnected stories that form this novel take place in a Madrid as exotic as the Baghdad of the 1001 Arabian Nights and feature unforgettable characters in revolt against their young "author". First published in 1936 and long neglected, this elegantly inventive novel anticipates works like Pale Fire and One Hundred Years of Solitude. In Locos, Felipe Alfau creates a mercurial dreamscape in which the characters - the eccentric, sometimes criminal, habitues of Toledo's Cafe of the Crazy - wrench free of authorial control, invade one another's stories, and even turn into one another.
