Description
Nine-year-old Leandro's life is changed by the arrival of a diabolical stranger, who attempts to sell a collection of mysterious paintings to his mother. After offending the traveler, Leandro finds himself magically transported to a windowless tower that was depicted in one of the pictures. Alone in a sinister world, the boy begins to populate the emptiness with the Devil and other beings of his own devising. Inspired by surrealism and the writings of Lewis Carroll, the Argentinean poet and novelist Silvina Ocampo (1903–93) was a friend and peer of Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino. Ocampo's works have been enjoying a resurgence in recent years, and are increasingly being translated into English.
