Juan José Saer (28 June 1937 - 11 June 2005) was one of the most important Argentine novelists of the last fifty years. Saer's novels frequently thematize the situation of the self-exiled writer through the figures of two twin brothers, one of whom remained in Argentina during the dictatorship, while the other, like Saer himself, moved to Paris; several of his novels trace their separate and intertwining fates, along with those of a host of other characters who alternate between foreground and background from.
