Text: English, Spanish (translation)Review:
The story is like a great puzzle . . . invested with a vibrant, almost tangible reality. --The New York Times
Although many of the other "boom" writers may have received more attention especially Fuentes and Vargas Llosa Donoso and his masterpiece may be the most lasting, visionary, strangest of the books from this time period. Seriously, it's a novel about the last member of an aristocratic family, a monstrous mutant, who is surrounded by other freaks so as to not feel out of place. --Publishers Weekly
