As he runs wildly amok, Aira captures childhood’s treasures — the reality of the fable and the delirium of invention — in this hilariously funny book. The Seamstress and the Wind is a deliciously laugh-out-loud-funny novel. A seamstress who is sewing a wedding dress for the pregnant local art teacher fears that her son, while playing in a big semitruck, has been accidentally kidnapped and driven off to Patagonia. Completely unhinged, she calls a local taxi to follow the semi in hot pursuit. When her husband finds out what’s happened, he takes off after wife and child. They race not only to the end of the world, but to adventures in desire — where the wild Southern wind falls in love with the seamstress, and a monster child takes up with the truck driver. Interspersed are Aira’s musings about memory and childhood, and his hometown of Coronel Pringles, with a compelling view of the hard lot of this working-class town, situated not far from Buenos Aires.

Es war einmal in Colonel Pringles, jenem mythischen Städtchen César Airas: Dort lebte eine Näherin ohne Geschmack, aber von unendlicher Fingerfertigkeit. Wie viele andere Frauen in Pringles hatte sie einen einzigen Sohn. Eines Tages glaubt sie ihn entführt und nach Patagonien verschleppt. Sie rafft das Brautkleid zusammen, das sie noch schnell für die örtliche Kunstlehrerin nähen soll, springt in ein Taxi und folgt ihrem Sohn in wilder Jagd. Als ihr Mann davon erfährt, entschließt er sich, ihr zu folgen, und die Katastrophe nimmt ihren Lauf. Unterwegs verliebt sich ein Wirbelwind in die Näherin und offenbart sich ihr irgendwo am Ende der Welt. Er verspricht ihr, (fast) all ihre Wünsche zu erfüllen. Eine rasante Novelle im unvergleichlichen Stil des großen argentinischen Autors.
