About this Item

Translated into English by Suzanne Jill Levine, acclaimed writer Puig has written a story of a love affair between two social misfits. Gladys is unmarried, is mugged, loses an eye, and has a nervous breakdown before returning to Argentina from New York City. Leo's life has included violence also, in fact he murdered someone twenty years earlier, a crime that has gone undetected. The book is tight, appears unread, however, it has some dust and soiling around the edges. The predominantly white dust jacket also shows a big of age darkening and rubbing but very little wear and is not price-clipped. No marks, names, or other flaws. Now in mylar cover.
