Editorial Reviews

Review

"Accomplishes the indispensable function Salman Rushdie says the storyteller must have: not to let the old tales die out." -- Carmen Perilli, La Gaceta, Tucuman

"Angelica Gorodischer is the indisputable pride of Argentinean literature." -- Mariana Amato, La Nacion, Buenos Aires

"Nabokovian in its accretion of strange and rich detail, making the story seem at once scientific and dreamlike." -- Time Out New York

"Reaches much farther than the common run of stories about huge empires...enters the realm of fable, legend, and allegory." -- Luis G. Prado, Gigamesh, Barcelona

From the Publisher

Small Beer Press is proud to present Kalpa Imperial, the history of an imaginary empire, written by Angelica Gorodischer, a major South American fantasist and translated by Ursula K. Le Guin, one of North America’s most dazzling and fearless writers.

Gorodischer and Le Guin, born in the same year, are a well-matched, sly and delightful team of magician-storytellers. Rarely have author and translator been such an effortless pairing. Kalpa Imperial is a powerful introduction to the writing of Angélica Gorodischer, a novel which will enthrall readers already familiar with the worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin.
