Fangio, I've finished all the Borges books I can find in NYC, can you recommend a young Argentine writer of magic realism?

there is nothing typical in Argentina apart from nostalgia, pessimism and being not typical

a tactic without names is a nonsense tactic...carne asada can be as good as the quality of the meat involve, won't change that much a shitty carne if you barbecued or not

You just put Borges under "magic Realism" label? shame on you!...young argie writers? Borges explained it better, is almost impossible to give credit to our contemporaries...give me a call in 40 years, I will recommend then a writer from the 1990's

Should be Ronaldo...or a 2.00 mts dude with the skills of Maradona...

It is Bonita, she is not an old bald man with fixation for daddy's car like you so she can see good things in contemporaries and young argies...
Anyways, magic realism is that style that should be defined as those who want to write like Kafka... and perhaps nothing more...

Bonita, ask Fangio some text that he wrote, I am sure he must have something kept p
How is possible to read all about Borges, I still finding lose ends here and there...His complete works then, are so not complete...

Fangio why is Javier Zanetti not respected as much in Argentina as he is in Italy? Is it because he became European-ized?

Message received. So I shall watch Lionel Messi attentively for the next 40 years as he writes the great Argentine fiction with both feet

But Fangio, why are you treating the words ~magic realism~ as if they are the unlaundered socks of Arguero?

I just don't like labels, more those one generated in Europe to describe the latin american writers boom in the 60's...I dunno, the name Isabel Allende appears isntantly when I read it...just one of my many prejudices...


I'm not reading anything since time girl, better I know I read sthg not long ago, but I can't even recall waht...I only recall re reading some Stevenson's stories...so I can't be of much help of actual argie writers...I can tell some writers I like from here anyway:

Juan Jose Saer
Adolfo Bioy Casares
Julio Cortazar
Antonio Di Benedetto (a hidden pearl)
