"El llanto" is a novel that centers around an Argentine writer, who, as he approaches the age of 40, suddenly confronts the horrible certainty that what he feared most has happened: his life collapses around him. A cultural trip to Poland is transformed into a year of horror and misery, and on his return, his wife suddenly decides to "start living": she leaves him and their dog Rin Tin Tin for a Japanese terrorist. Meanwhile, reality and nightmare proliferate and precipitate in the vertigo of chance. Written by César Aira, who has also authored "Moreira", "Ema", "La cautiva", "La luz argentina", "Las ovejas", "Canto Castrato", "Una novela china", "Los fantasmas", "El bautismo", "La liebre" and "Embalse"
