Adolfo Bioy Casares

As an Argentinian writer, Adolfo Bioy Casares was born in 1914 in Buenos Aires, in a patrician family. Polyglot, great reader, Bioy Casares lives at the heart of the Argentinian intellectual and literary world. He publishes his first novel at the age of fourteen and meets Jorge Luis Borges in 1932. During those years, the two of them have diner every night together, and this friendship gives rise to several books. When he turns 26, Bioy Casares publishes the novel that makes him famous, The Invention of Morel, considered by some readers as the most beautiful love story. Quickly translated into many languages, the novel turns him into one of the most important writer of the Latin continent. The recurrent themes of ghosts, buried worlds, illusion and appearance run through Bioy Casares’ whole work. Some other novels are published, that share this fantastic vein, such as A Plan for Escape, The Celestial Plot, or The Dream of Heroes. Adolfo Bioy Casares obtained the Cervantès Prize for his entire work in 1990.
