  • 'A kind of magical realism for science fiction ... Quite, quite brilliant' Tor

    Part pulp adventure, part otherworldly meditation, this is the story of Trafalgar Medrano: intergalactic trader and lover of bitter coffee and black cigarettes. In the bars and cafés of Rosario, Argentina, he recounts tall tales of his space escapades - involving, among other things, time travel and dancing troglodytes.

    'A unique brand of science fiction ... unlike anything I've ever read' Los Angeles Review of Books

Although born in Buenos Aires in 1928, Angélica Gorodischer is most closely associated with the city of Rosario, her home since childhood and also the home of her famous character Trafalgar Medrano. She has written over twenty books, including Trafalgar (1979) and the fantastical Kalpa Imperial (1983-4), which was translated into English by Ursula K. Le Guin. Her work has been compared to that of Borges and Calvino, and she has won numerous literary prizes as well as an award for her contribution to women's rights. In 2011 she received a World Fantasy Award for lifetime achievement.
