Staff Reviews


Less “stories” and more “linguistic landscapes” or “ambient textualities” or “en-languaged fogs,” Two Stories is one of those books that questions how books and sentences are supposed to work. Lamborghini is an utterly unique, tantalizingly difficult, and occasionally dirty writer.

— From Two Stories

Description


Fiction. Translated by Jessica Sequera. The writing of the late Osvaldo Lamborghini (1940--1985) resists almost any attempt to characterize, let alone summarize. An iconoclastic figure of the Latin American literary milieu of the mid-to-late twentieth century, Lamborghini melded the baroque and the low-brow to often outrageous effect (Bola o said he could only read a few pages of him at once). Rendered into English for the first time here are two long short stories, The Morning and Just Write Anything , an accurate sample of his work in much the same way that a bucket of seawater is an accurate sample of the ocean.
