About this title

Synopsis:

Hailed by The New York Times as â an Argentinian tour de force.â

Manuel Puigâ s masterful and ironic â detective novelâ concerns the abduction of a woman, an impending murder, and the dim memories of a thousand old glamour queensâ Garbo, Dietrich, Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworthâ all combining to make a powerful portrait of two decidedly unglamorous lives: Gladys Hebe Dâ Onofrio, a lonely 35-year-old sculptor, tormented by her fantasies and perpetually in search of the ideal lover; and Leo Druscovich, an outwardly confident and successful art critic, deeply troubled by a terrible guilt that surfaces in his repeated sexual failures. Taking on, exchanging, and growing into the roles of victim and criminal, their lives presented through a variety of different kinds of â evidenceâ â lists, scribbled notes, transcripts, one-sided interrogationsâ these two lost souls gradually find themselves entirely dependent on one another . . . and heading towards precisely the sort of violent ending a detective novel demands.

About the Author:

Manuel Puig is the acclaimed author of many novels, including Betrayed by Rita Hayworth, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and The Buenos Aires Affair. He was born in Argentina in 1932 and died in Mexico in 1990.
