Alicia Borinsky

Lost Cities Go to Paradise Las ciudades perdidas van al paraso

Las Ciudades Perdidas Van Al Paraiso

€ 21.95


`In Lost Cities Go to Paradise, poetry breaks into song and poetic prose becomes lively storytelling as Alicia Borinsky raises intimate questions about the fragility of contemporary life. Composed of many layered scenes, unforgettable characters, snapshots, and vignettes, this collection of quick-witted poems and short fiction mixes deceit and conceit with moments of tenderness and the elusive nature of humanity, asking if identity is more than a festival of masks and self-invention. At the center of Borinsky`s work are the cities, which are a masquerade of disaster and spectacle that moves through space and time. Within these cities reside a man with two bills who gives three out of generosity, a woman who hides her face so that she may be better seen,cheating lovers who betray only to end up entwined in a tango, and immigrants who borrow each other`s accents. Filled with energy and irreverence, Lost Cities Go to Paradise captures the indignities and excitement of living among others in a society and discovering what is valued--and all that is not`-
