"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
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.
