Op Oloo

About the Author

Juan Filloy was an excellent swimmer, dedicated boxing referee, and talented caricaturist; he spoke seven languages and he practised as a judge in the small town of Rio Cuarto, 200 kilometres from Cordoba, where he spent nearly the whole of his life. He died in 2000 at the age of 106. A world champion palindromist, he made use of the entire dictionary in his books, coined new words, and used only seven letters in all the titles of his works. He received various distinctions during his lifetime and was nominated for the Nobel Prize.

Lisa Dillman teaches in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Emory University and has translated numerous works of fiction by Argentine, Mexican, Catalan, and Spanish writers. She lives in Decatur, Georgia.

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.
