Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Puig’s work is among the most original of the final years of the 20th century. (Mario Vargas Llosa)
A brilliant, forceful, melancholic arabesque of a novel, the tone reminiscent of Bertolucci’s freer moments. This is surely the most detailed and least sentimental elegy ever written. (Kirkus Reviews)
A brilliant Argentine novelist, indebted to Joyce and Faulkner, but endowed with formidably original comic talents. (Library Journal)”
