Notes

General Note
"First published as 'Personas en la sala' in 1950 by Editorial Sudamericana, Buenos Aires"--Title page verso.
General Note
"A version of César Aira's introduction was originally given as a lecture held at the House of Literature in Oslo in 2016" -- Title page verso.
Description
"A young woman in Buenos Aires spies three women in the house opposite her family's home. Intrigued, she begins to watch them. She imagines them as accomplices to an unknown crime, as troubled spinsters contemplating suicide, or as players in an affair with dark and mysterious consequences. Lange's imaginative excesses and almost hallucinatory images make this uncanny exploration of desire, domestic space, voyeurism and female isolation a twentieth-century masterpiece. Too long viewed as Borges's muse, Lange is today recognised in the Spanish-speaking world as a great writer and is here translated into English for the first time, to be read alongside Virginia Woolf, Clarice Lispector and Marguerite Duras."--Provided by publisher.
Language
Translated from the Spanish.
