Description
On his deathbed, Paraguay's "elected" dictator for life, José Gaspar Rodriguez de Francia, looks back on his brutal reign, in this 1974 novel by Cervantes Prize winner Augusto Roa Bastos. Without family or friends, and only his secretary-confidant Patino present, "El Supremo" dictates his view of the world, in a text laced with wordplay and droll footnotes.

"I the Supreme is one of the milestones of the Latin American novel."—Carlos Fuentes

"A prodigious meditation not only on history and power, but also on the nature of language itself."—NYTimes
