THE IMAGINED LAND
BY EDUARDO BERTI
TRANSLATED FROM THE SPANISH BY CHARLOTTE COOMBE | FORTHCOMING FROM DEEP VELLUM, 2018
With sensuous imagery and musical cadence, renowned Oulipian Eduardo Berti conjures an exquisite, star-crossed love story in pre-revolutionary China. The desires of a young girl, visited in her dreams by her grandmother’s ghost, clash with the strict expectations of her parents, exploring the delicate balance between modernity and tradition, mysticism and memory.
“One of the most original and talented novelists writing in Spanish today.” — Alberto Manguel
