"Ricardo Piglia may be the best Latin American writer to have appeared since the heyday of Gabriel Garcia Marquez." --Kirkus Reviews

A passionate political and psychological thriller set in a remote Argentinean Pampas town, TARGET IN THE NIGHT is an intense and tragic family history reminiscent of KING LEAR, in which the madness of the detective is integral to solving crimes. TARGET IN THE NIGHT, a masterpiece, won every major literary prize in the Spanish language in 2011.

Ricardo Piglia (b. 1941), widely considered the greatest living Argentine novelist, has taught for decades in American universities, including most recently at Princeton.

Sergio Waisman, associate professor of Spanish at George Washington University, translates Latin American literature and is the author of BORGES AND TRANSLATION: THE IRREVERENCE OF THE PERIPHERY..
