Overview

Creo que mi mujer se está acostando son mi hermano, piensa Ignacio. Tiene treinta y cinco años, es un banquero acaudalado y adicto al trabajo. Zoe, su bellísima esposa, se aburre en ese matrimonio tan perfecto que se torna opresivo. Quien se ocupará de romper la rutina será Gonzalo, el hermano menor de Ignacio, un pintor apasionado y seductor que no perdona: aunque Zoe, su cuñada, le gusta mucho, ¿intentará seducirla y llegar hasta el final, traicionando a su hermano?

Dos hermanos y una mujer: el triángulo se perfila de un modo inquietante. Es una bomba que va a desencadenar secretos familiares, el furor contenido del deseo, la fuerza ingobernable del amor. Una historia apasionante, que subyuga de principio a fin, narrada con exquisita maestría: el Jaime Bayly más deslumbrante.

*****
I think my woman is sleeping with my brother, thinks Ignacio. At 35, he is a banker addicted to his job. Zoe, his lovely wife, is bored in her "perfect," yet oppressive marriage. The one to break this routine will be Gonzalo, Ignacio's younger brother, a passionate and seductive painter who makes no excuses: although he finds his sister-in-law, Zoe, very pleasing, will he try to seduce her and end up betraying his brother?

Two men and one woman: a triangle outlined in a disturbing way.

Told with exquisite mastery; Jaime Bayly at his best.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
A Peruvian TV icon living in Miami and one of the most successful writers in Latin America, Bayly has entered a new creative stage with this latest novel. Ever since his 1994 debut with the acclaimed No se lo digas a nadie (Don't Tell Anyone, Seix Barral, 1999), most of his stories have followed a similar trajectory: the initiation into homosexuality and drugs of a Bayly-like character living in a conservative, machista ("patriarchal") Lima. In this story of a love triangle between a woman and two brothers, Bayly mercilessly and with dark irony portrays the little miseries and pettinesses of Latin America's upper class. Instead of telling the tale solely from the narrator's perspective, Bayly generously explores the inner thoughts of Ignacio, a successful but boring banker; his wife, Zoe; and his bohemian brother, Gonzalo. Seduced by Gonzalo, Zoe becomes torn between her luxurious but passionless life and her longing for adventure. At the same time, both brothers confront old frustrations and rivalries. Unlike most of his books-which are basically collections of loosely autobiographical anecdotes-all the roles here are completely fictional, and there is an actual plot. Even though Bayly has proved himself a top-notch writer, this fictionalized account does not equal his earlier self-confessional works. Although the language is accessible even to non-Spanish speaking readers, the style will probably disappoint some of Bayly's fans. It's far less colorful and vivid than in such previous novels as La noche es virgen (The Night Is Young, Anagrama, 2000). Still, considering Bayly's following, the book promises to be a hot shelf item. Recommended for commercial bookstores and public libraries.

    Jaime Bayly, best latin novelist of this generation

    Realistic, sexy, funny, and in its own kind of way sweet. Shows you how stupid people can be, and how fortunate some are that when they err, forgiveness awaits.
