Horacio Oliveira is an Argentinian writer who lives in Paris with his mistress, La Maga, surrounded by a loose-knit circle of bohemian friends who call themselves the Club. A child’s death and La Magas’ disappearance put an end to his life of empty pleasures and intellectual acrobatics. He returns to Buenos Aires, where he works as a salesman, a keeper of a circus cat that can actually count, and an attendant in an insane asylum.

Horacio Oliveira es un escritor argentino que vive en París con su amante, La Maga, y rodeado por un círculo bohemio de amigos quienes se hacen llamar “El Club”. La muerte de un infante y la desaparición de La Maga, terminan con su vida llena de placeres vanos y acrobacias intelectuales.
