Adolfo Bioy Casares’ The Invention of Morel is a novella told through the diary of a fugitive who escapes his native Venezuela to what he believes is an uninhabited island. His hallucinatory account is key to the story, with time and tides out of synch and a strange reoccurrence and duplication of objects, people, animals and even two suns and two moons. At the centre of the Fugitive’s disorienting existence is Faustine, a woman he becomes more infatuated with as he watches her, although she never appears to see him.
