It was the seventh book published by Bioy Casares, but for him only after “The invention of Morel” his literary career started. In this book a fugitive hide himself in a deserted island where there’s an old museum until the day when the island receive unexpected guests. It’s from this simple premise that Casares create constant distortions between sanity and folly, real a imaginary.
