"We cannot help but throw ourselves in the footprints of Doctor Pi."---Enrique Molina
"There is an Argentine poetry before Bayley, and another after him."---Alberto Vanasco
Doctor Pi---a sleuth without a crime. A flaneur on official business. Organizer of unknowable expeditions, lover of brunettes. Doctor Pi, with his frock coat, top hat, and uncommon blend of elation and discretion, is difficult to describe and impossible not to pursue. We follow him through a familiar and cryptic world, whose logic---equal parts comedy, poetry, and absurdity---is a puzzle only Doctor Pi can solve. The Life and Memoirs of Doctor Pi and Other Stories marks the first translation of Edgar Bayley's work into English, an accomplishment long overdue. Bayley's stories suspend your disbelief for you, and offer in exchange an inimitable creation: its dimensions human, its intrigue transcendent.
