In The Large Glass, celebrated Mexican innovator Mario Bellatin now examines his most complicated subject; himself. Featuring three different autobiographies, The Large Glass challenges the absurd and hubristic project of the autobiography itself -- how can any writer account for himself in a way that is dignified yet honest? Intimate yet public? Like the Duchamp sculpture from which it takes its name, Mario Bellatin's The Large Glass deconstructs the very form it embraces, revealing the artifice of the autobiographical genre, while cleverly celebrating the importance of the stories we tell about ourselves.
