About this item
In this epistolary novel that blurs the line between reality and fiction, Mario Bellatin writes to a mysterious correspondent he has only met once, to discuss the mysteries of the resurrection of the flesh. Bellatin details the fantastical events that unfold over the course of his unusual existence, as he travels with Sergio Pitol to Cuba, is attended to by a blind masseur in an underground storefront at a Mexico City metro station, and meets a family of dwarf bullfighters. Winner of Cuba's most important prize for fiction, The Uruguayan Book of the Dead represents Bellatin's most imaginative, most important work yet.
