Description
Something has changed in Amos Keres, a university mathematics professor - his sentences trail off in class, he is disgusted by the sight of his wife and son, and he longs to flee the comfortable bourgeois life he finds himself a part of. Written in a fragmented style that echoes the character's increasingly fragile hold on reality, With My Dog-Eyes is an intensely vivid read. Hilst, whose father was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, has created a lacerating, and yet oddly hopeful, portrayal of a descent into hell.

Hilda Hilst (1930--2004) was one of the greatest Brazilian writers of the twentieth century, but her books have languished untranslated, in part because of their formally radical nature. This translation of With My Dog-Eyes brings a crucial work from her oeuvre into English for the first time.

With My Dog-Eyes is an account of an unraveling--of sanity, of language . . . After experiencing a vision of what he calls "a clear-cut unhoped-for," college professor Amós Keres struggles to reconcile himself with his life as a father, a husband, and a member of the university with its "meetings, asskissers, pointless rivalries, gratuitous resentments, jealous talk, megalomanias."

A stunning book by a master of the avant-garde.
