About the Author

Enrique Vila-Matas was born in Barcelona in 1948. His novels have been translated into eleven languages and honored by many prestigious literary awards including the Prix Medicis Etranger. Author of Bartleby & Co., Montano's Malady, and Never Any End to Paris, he has received Europe's most prestigious awards and been translated into twenty-seven languages. Anne McLean has won the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize twice, as well as the Premio Valle Inclan. She has translated the works of Javier Cercas, Julio Cortazar, Carmen Martin Gaite, Ignacio Padilla, and Evelio Rosero. Anna Milsom, b. 1951, is an acclaimed experimental artist.


"An enjoyable journey through the mind of a magnificent Spanish author." -- Publishers Weekly "I don't know Vila-Matas personally, nor am I planning to meet him. I prefer to read him and let his literature pervade me." -- Pedro Almodovar "An elegant and ironic writer. Vila-Matas is one of Spain's most distinguished novelists." -- Rachel Nolan - The New York Times "Enrique Vila-Matas has pioneered one of the contemporary literature's most interesting responses to the great Modernist writers." -- The Paris Review "Vila-Matas leads the reader through a whimsical tour of art installations and occurrences, all the while referencing authors and artists that enhance how his narrator perceives (e.g. Kafka, Walser, Roussel, Gaddis, Duchamp, Dali, and Calle)." -- Rob Stephenson - Rain Taxi "For Vila-Matas, literature is a chamber of echoes. But rather than thinking of this as a criticism, this is to be embraced-one of literature's eternal beauties." -- Tristan Foster - Words Without Borders "Vila-Matas is a remarkable ironist, a skill he deploys throughout Kassel and A Brief History as sly humour, but also as a destabilization technique to create nebulous, discomfiting spaces..." -- Pasha Mall - The Globe and Mail
