If Dogs of Paradise novel belongs to the magic realism then there is much more magic than realism. And its convoluted magic is mostly on the side of a frilly farce…
This is the Aztec world:
Frenzy of life. Muted song of warriors training in ritual ball games.

I had never heard of this author and novel until I discovered it at a sale in a library. I bought it for 1 euro, and that means my greatest literary return on investment ever. Posse's antichronological approach of Christopher Columbus's voyage to America is very convincing, this is really first class literature. Posse's wording of the unclear and dark motives of man is unique.
