With My Dog Eyes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

With My Dog Eyes free pdf Something has changed in Amos Keres, a university mathematics professor - his sentences trail off in class, he is disgusted by the sight of his wife and son, and he longs to flee the comfortable bourgeois life he finds himself a part of. Written in a fragmented style that echoes the character's increasingly fragile hold on reality, With My Dog-Eyes is an intensely vivid read. Hilst, whose father was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, has created a lacerating, and yet oddly hopeful, portrayal of a descent into hell.

About Hilda Hilst

Hilda Hilst was born in 1930 in JaU, Brazil. She was a prolific author whose works span many different genres, including poetry, drama, fiction, and newspaper columns. Born the heiress to a coffee fortune, she abandoned SAo Paulo and a law career in the 1950s to devote herself to literature, moved to the countryside, and built herself a house, Casa do Sol, where she lived until the end of her life with a rotating cast of friends, lovers, aspiring artists, bohemian poets, and dozens of dogs. She received numerous major literary prizes over the course of her career, including Brazil's highest honor, the PrEmio Jabuti. She died in 2004, at the age of seventy-three. Adam Morris is a PhD candidate in Latin American literature at Stanford University. An excerpt from his translation of "With My Dog-Eyes" won the 2012 Susan Sontag Foundation Prize for Literary Translation.
