Borges, Jorge Luis & Bioy-Casares, Adolfo

Six Problems for Don Isidro Parodi. 1942.

"This work is a collection of spoof detective stories written in 1942 under the pen name of 'Bustos Domecq.' They tell the tale of a detective confined to a jail cell, and at the same time act as a satire on Argentine society. For years it was not made known that 'Bustos Domecq' was really Borges and Bioy-Casares." (A. Ruch)

Borges, Jorge Luis & Bioy-Casares, Adolfo

Chronicles of Bustos Domecq. 1969.

"With Adolfo Bioy-Casares. First published in 1969, this book is written as if it were the work of a fictional literary journalist, the same Bustos Domecq who supposedly penned Six Problems for Don Isidro Parodi. Chronicles is composed of short essays on subjects that range from "abstract art" to works of imaginary fiction. By bringing this pompous and witless critic to life, Borges and Bioy-Casares are able to slyly attack the precepts of modernism and literary criticism. It is a very funny book, with definite echoes of the Borgesian style he uses in his more straightforward fiction." (A. Ruch)
