As a reader, one cannot help but feel challenged to cover so much, or nearly as much as Aira: to follow the footprints of his numerous books is a full-time job. I have met men and women who have left their families, their jobs and their countries for the pursuit of these novels. The Airan novel is not long-winded, but fast-paced. He is a self-proclaimed fan of stereotypes: his characters are fair magicians, women beat by jerks, European tourists in Buddhist temples, monks and nuns, pizza delivery boys, zombies, occasionally writers and occasionally himself a character. No psychology or psychologisms to be found here.

Aira has published over a hundred short books of stories, novels and essays. In fact, at least since a hallmark of his work is a truly frenetic level of writing and publication—two to five novella-length books each year. Besides his fiction, and the translation work he does for a living, Aira also writes literary criticism, including monographic studies of Copi, the poet Alejandra Pizarnik , and the nineteenth-century British limerick and nonsense writer Edward Lear. He wrote a short book, Las tres fechas The Three Dates , arguing for the central importance, when approaching some minor eccentric writers, of examining the moment of their lives about which they are writing, the date of completion of the work, and the date of publication of the work. Aira also was the literary executor of the complete works of his friend the poet and novelist Osvaldo Lamborghini — Aira has often spoken in interviews of elaborating an avant-garde aesthetic in which, rather than editing what he has written, he engages in a "flight forward" fuga hacia adelante to improvise a way out of the corners he writes himself into. Aira also seeks in his own work, and praises in the work of others such as the Argentine-Parisian cartoonist and comic novelist Copi , the "continuum" el continuo of a constant momentum in the fictional narrative.
