By Mario Levrero, Annie McDermott (Translator)
Special Order—Subject to Availability


An eccentric novelist begins to keep a notebook of handwriting exercises, hoping that if he's able to improve his penmanship, his personal character will also improve. What begins as a mere physical exercise becomes involuntarily colored by humorous reflections and tender anecdotes about living, writing, and the sense--or nonsense--of existence.
