Overview

El todopoderoso director de un diario de Buenos Aires se obsesiona con Reina Remis, una periodista de talento a la que dobla en edad. Su soberbia le impide ver que los sentimientos ajenos no está bajo su dominio, y esa ceguera lo sume en una historia de amor de la que saldrá transfigurado.
A partir de esta intriga clásica, Tomás Eloy Martínez construye una novela irresistible sobre el deseo, el poder y la identidad. Casi todo lo que sucede dos veces, de un modo siempre más oscuro y desconcertante. La corrupción política y la impunidad en un país que se va viniendo abajo, y el creciente delirio erótico, van dibujando un friso cuyo final, imprevisible, arrastra a los lectores otra vez a la primera línea del libro, atrapados por una historia que se parece a la vida.

Premio Alfaguara de Novela 2002.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A bimonthly columnist for the New York Times and a Latin American studies professor at Rutgers, Martinez has written several novels, including the Argentine classics Santa Evita (Saint Evita, Planeta, 1996) and La novela de Peron (Peron's Novel, Random House Espa$ol, 1997). This latest work received this year's Alfaguara prize for new fiction (see news, Criticas, May/June 2002), a prestigious recognition that affirms his place as one of Latin America's best writers. In the current novel, G.M. Camargo, the powerful director of a recognized Buenos Aires newspaper, becomes obsessed with the young and talented journalist Reina Remis. After taking charge of her journalism career, the arrogant director can't accept the fact that he can't control Remis's feelings; this blindness turns their love affair into a distressing and dangerous relationship. Always aware of the political turmoil and social contrasts that characterize the Argentine capital, Martinez constructs an irresistible intrigue about desire, power, and machismo that will grip readers until the last page. Situations in the book tend to repeat themselves Camargo and Remis get together twice, and he drugs and hits her twice as well and tension increases each time. Martinez also doesn't follow a strict chronology, which will keep readers wondering why and how certain events happened. An accessible read, this winner is highly recommended for public libraries and bookstores. Carmen Ospina, "Criticas" Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
