Editorial Reviews

Review

''[Di Benedetto] has written essential pages that have moved me and that continue to move me.'' --Jorge Luis Borges, Edgar award-winning author

''This year's release of Antonio Di Benedetto's masterpiece is a literary event of great importance, and it puts an end to an unjust historical neglect.'' --Publishers Weekly

''An existential masterpiece and one of the great novels of the Spanish language, Zama is Antonio di Benedetto's most famous -- and, arguably, his best -- work.'' --Latin American Review of Books

''Read it above all for the triumph of its style . . . It's Sartre by way of J. Peterman, and in Esther Allen's translation it still feels unique and alive.'' --Paris Review Daily

About the Author

Antonio Di Benedetto (1922-1986) was born in Mendoza, Argentina. He began his career as a journalist, writing for the Mendoza paper Los Andes. In 1953 he published his first book, a collection of short stories titled Mundo Animal. Zama was his first novel, followed by El Silenciero, Los Suicidas, and Sonbras, Nada Mas. Over the course of his career, he received numerous honors, including a 1975 Guggenheim Fellowship and decorations from the French and Italian governments, and he earned the admiration of such well-known writers as Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortazar, and Roberto Bolano. In 1976 Di Benedetto was imprisoned and tortured by Argentina s military dictatorship. After his release in 1977, he went into exile in Spain. He returned to Buenos Aires in 1984 and died less than two years later.

Armando Duran has appeared in films, television, and regional theaters throughout the West Coast. For the last decade he has been a member of the resident acting company at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. In 2009 he was named by AudioFile as Best Voice in Biography and History for his narration of Che Guevara. A native Californian, he divides his time between Los Angeles and Ashland, Oregon.
