Product description

An extraordinary meditation on experience, writing, and space, "My Two Worlds" is about a writer lost in an unfamiliar Brazilian city, searching for a park. Struggling to match the two-dimensional map with reality, and disturbed by the bad reviews his new book is receiving, he begins to see his thoughts, reflections, and memories mirrored in the landscape and its inhabitants.

Review quote

"Lean, thoughtful, and keenly observed, the Argentinean Chejfec's first work translated into English packs a great deal of insight into 102 pages ... Carson's magnificent translation of Chejfec's latest work should be treated as a significant event.""Publishers Weekly" "
