Overview

No se lo digas a nadie narra la trayectoria personal de un retoño de la mas acomodada burguesía limeña, el cual descubre, en un contexto familiar donde el mas brutal machismo y clasismo coexisten con la mojigatería, su propia identidad homo erótica, que le lleva, no sin algún episodio de ocasional heterosexualidad, a la espiral de la drogadicción, en el ámbito de los «coqueros» y al borde mismo de la prostitución masculina urbana. Sin embargo, el protagonista no es devorado por el mundo de la marginalidad, y, al aceptarse a si mismo, convierte su conflictiva ruta, alejada ya de la droga, en una afirmación serena de la condición que le define.

La novela se singulariza por una maestría extraordinaria en el manejo del diálogo, a la altura de los mejores aciertos de Manuel Puig, con no menor oído y sentido del humor, y con una percepción igualmente lúcida de las connotaciones sociales de la realidad descrita. Pese a la frecuente dureza de lo narrado, la Inteligencia y la ironía del escritor, sorprendentemente maduro en esta su primera salida, hacen de No se lo digas a nadie una lectura apasionante y reveladora. En palabras de Mario Vargas Llosa: «Esta excelente novela describe con desenvoltura y desde dentro la filosofía desencantada, nihilista y sensual de la nueva generación.

    A MUST for every gay latino male

    This book is great! I wanted to laugh, I wanted to cry. This book explains a lot of the underlying conditions of existence in Latin America, especially the gay male experience. Excellently portrays the role that 'machismo', straight trade, Catholicism, guilt, and shame bring into Hispanic gay culture. A must for every gay latino male
