Editorial Reviews

Mario Vargas Llosa
“Puig’s work is among the most original of the final years of the 20th century.”
Ronald de Feo - The National Review
“The appearance of Manuel Puig’s new novel, The Buenos Aires Affair, is especial cause for celebration, not only because the book makes for fascinating reading, but also because it demonstrates that its already highly accomplished author continues to take chances and to grow as an artist. . . . The book is more intense, serious, and disturbing than the other novels, and it is a welcome departure for this searching, gifted writer.”
