Book Description

Aug. 4 2009 Latin American Literature

His life runs according to a methodical and rigid schedule, with everything -- from his meals down to his regular visits to the city brothels -- timed to the minute. But when an insignificant traffic delay upsets this sacred schedule, and on the day of Oloop's engagement party, the clock begins ticking down towards a catastrophe that no amount of planning will avert. A playful and unpredictable masterpiece of Argentinean literature, raising comparisons to Ulysses and serving as a primary inspiration to authors such as Julio Cortázar and Alfonso Reyes, Op Oloopis the first novel by lawyer, Hellenist, boxing referee, and decagenarian Juan Filloy (1894-2000) to be translated into English.

4.0 out of 5 stars Character development is the name of the game. Oct. 16 2010

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The hook for this book, that it is the story of a man trapped by time, numbers, and schedules, is really only the beginning of this story. Op Oloop is a tragic comedy about life, love, war, sexuality, social classes and everything else that we do, and that is done to us, during our lives. Not much "happens" in this tale of one man's day -- this isn't a story for those who are looking to read about an exciting, plot-driven murder mystery story or the like. However, although this is primarily the story of a journey through one man's mind, you'll still find yourself holding your breath as you read, wondering what will happen next.
