A brand new translation the the name tale is offered via NYRB, and will be came upon on bibliotik. For an unknown cause, NYRB's version in simple terms translated the identify tale (albeit the main well-known of the collection). This version contains numerous extra stories.

Adolfo Bioy Casares is a part of a mythical trio of Argentine buddies and authors: Silvina Ocampo (his spouse) and Jorge Luis Borges. they've got all collaborated in a single manner or one other on literary endeavors.

If you're a fan of Borges, I hugely recommend taking a look into the works of Bioy Casares and Ocampo.
