About the Author
Ángel Bonomini (1929-1994) was forty-three years old in 1972 when he published The Novices of Lerna, the first of four books of short stories he released before his death at age sixty-four. A contemporary of Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares, and Silvina Ocampo, he received the prestigious Premio Konex twice.

Jordan Landsman was born in New York City. After graduating from Binghamton University, he spent several years living in Buenos Aires, where he co-created the BA Comedy Lab. The Novices of Lerna is his first translation.

Reviews
"I'm so enthralled by the book that one night, when Borges came over, I proposed we read the only story I hadn't read yet: "The Novices of Lerna." We were dazzled. The story is admirably told, with much wisdom, everything is spot on, from the pleasantly calm tone to the description and ambience of the setting."--letter from Adolfo Bioy Casares to Ángel Bonomini, September 18, 1972
