Comments: Plots, obsessions

I've always meant to get round to reading something by Bioy Casares, because I'm a big fan of Jorge Luis Borges. Definitely this year then.

I have read a few of the spoof detective stories he wrote with Borges under the pseudonym "Bustos Domecq", which was a bit of a struggle because I tried reading it in Spanish and the original is full of Buenos Aires high society slang and abstruse references to Argentinian events and fashions of the 1930s and 40s (most of the characters in the book are pseuds and poseurs). I'll have to track down an English translation.
