About the Author

Roberto Arlt (1900-1942) is widely considered to be one of the founders of the modern Argentine novel and has been massively influential on Latin American literature, including the 1960s Boom generation of writers such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Isabel Allende. Colm Toibin is an award-winning writer and journalist whose books include Brooklyn, The Master, and The Testament of Mary.


'Wild, whirling novel of Buenos Aires - Poetically animated language keeps this novel fresh and surprising' Publishers Weekly 'Popular and incisive, it described the changing landscape and subjectivity of the time. Still influences writers' Clarin (Argentina's largest newspaper) 'If great means anything at all, then Arlt is surely a great writer' Martin Seymour-Smith
