Sinopsis:

The first novel by one of the greatest writers of Latin American literature is a semiautobiographical story reflecting the energy and chaos of early 20th-century Buenos Aires

Feeling the alienation of youth, Silvio Astier's gang tours neighborhoods, inflicting waves of petty crime, stealing from homes and shops until the police are forced to intervene. Drifting then from one career and subsequent crime to another, Silvio's main difficulty is his own intelligence, with which he grapples. Writing in the language of the streets and basing his writings in part on his own experience, with his characters wandering in a modern world, Arlt creates a book that combines realism, humor, and anger with detective story. Although astronomically famous in South America, Roberto Arlt's name is still relatively unknown in Anglophone circles, but the rising wave of appreciation of South American literature is bringing him to the fore.

From the Publisher: "With a novel such as Mad Toy, brimming with fantasy and romance, yet pulling the rug out from under the protagonist—and the reader—at every turn, it seems clear that Arlt's purpose is not just to tell a good story. Along the way, he also illustrates the uses of fantasy and humor. Fantasy, transforming the sordid into the beautiful, makes life seem sweeter; humor, exposing the illusions of fantasy, makes wisdom tolerable."—from the Introduction

"Roberto Arlt is the greatest Argentine writer of the twentieth century."—Ricardo Piglia, author of The Absent City and Artificial Respiration

"Arlt's influence on figures like Borges, Cortazar, Onetti, and Piglia is substantial—and equally so are his literary reverberations today, when his grim, sordid view of life seems to speak louder than ever before."—Ilan Stavans, editor of Mutual Impressions: Writers from the Americas Reading One Another
