Description

Cesar is a translator who s fallen on very hard times due to the global economic downturn; he is also an author, and a mad scientist hell-bent on world domination. On a visit to the beach he intuitively solves an ancient riddle, finds a pirate s treasure, and becomes a very wealthy man. Even so, Cesar s bid for world domination comes first and so he attends a literary conference to be near the man whose clone he hopes will lead an army to victory: the world-renowned Mexican author, Carlos Fuentes. A comic science fiction fantasy of the first order, The Literary Conference is the perfect vehicle for Cesar Aira s take over of literature in the 21st century."

Review quote

Aira is one of the most provocative and idiosyncratic novelists working in Spanish today and should not be missed.--Natasha Wimmer
