Description - The Bride From Odessa by Edgardo Cozarinsky
Set in Buenos Aires, Lisbon, Vienna, Budapest and Odessa, both before and after the Second World War, Edgardo Cozarinsky's stories belong to the spirit of Borges and to a great Argetine cosmopolitan tradition- that of the uprooted exile, the plaything of History, who, set down ina strange but proud land, looks back nostagically to the Europeanof his ancestral memory. Cozarinsky's characters are writers, lovers, scholars, artists and dreamers. An ambitious young Jew, about to marry and embark for a new life in Argentina is accosted by an unknown woman who departs with him to Buenos Aires; a pianist in a Buenos Aires night club finds himself drawn back to Germany in 1937; an Argentine-American Jew travels to Lisbon to unravel the threads of his Grandparents' wartime affair....
