The Seamstress and the Wind by César Aira

"Once you've started reading Aira, you don't want to stop."
(Roberto Bolaño)
In a small town in Argentina, a seamstress is sewing a wedding dress. All of a sudden she fears that her son has been kidnapped and driven off to Patagonia. She gives chase in a taxi. Her husband finds out and takes off after her – to the end of the world, to the place where monsters are born, and where the southern wind falls hopelessly in love.
