Pubis angelical / Edition 1by Manuel Puig
Pub. Date: 01/28/1990
Publisher: Distribooks, Inc.
In this artful fusion of espionage thriller and science fiction, Manuel Puig tells one story shared by three women-an actress in the 1930s, living in her husband's fairy-tale castle; a young woman in Mexico City in the 1970s, convalescing in a hospital; and a futuristic cyborg sex slave, occupying an artificial landscape. In the haunting and mysterious language for which he is renowned, Puig explores the links between these women, as well as the links between genders and generations.
Best known for his novel Kiss of the Spider Woman, which has been adapted as a movie and a Broadway musical, Manuel Puig (1932-1990) also wrote Blood of Requited Love and Eternal Curse on the Reader of These Pages (both published by the University of Minnesota Press, 1999), as well as Betrayed by Rita Hayworth, Heartbreak Tango, and The Buenos Aires Affair.
