Synopsis: El amor y la lealtad son puestos a pueba en esta novela llena de brío y agudeza de la reconocida autora puertorriqueña, Rosario Ferré, autora de La casa de la laguna. Se trata de la historia de una bailarina famosa mundialmente que, en el 1917, visita a Puerto Rico en gira artística y se enamora locamente de un atrevido revolucionario al que le dobla la edad. La imperiosa Madame ha regido su vida por la norma, 'el artista debe anteponer siempre su arte al amor.' Al enamorarse Madame, sin embargo, no solo rueda por el piso su antigua doctrina, sino que pierde el respeto de sus jóvenes bailarinas, quiénes juzgan que Madame las ha traicionado. A esta deslealtad a los ideales artísticos se entreteje la agitación de los disturbios políticos locales, en los cuales Madame y su grupo también se ven involucrados. La revolución rusa los ha dejado sin patria, varados en una isla desgarrada por una guerra de independencia subversiva y solapada, que nadie en la colonia se atreve a mencionar abiertamente.

Las aventuras de Madame son narradas por Masha, su devota seguidora y dama de compañía, quién tiene un ojo perspicaz y describe las tensiones a punto de explotar bajo la superficie aparentemente tranquila del paraíso tropical. Masha sufre a su vez una metamórfosis a causa de la sensualidad del ambiente, y su vida se transforma. Ferré ha tejido aquí, en un rico tapiz de intriga romántica y conspiración política, un retrato convincente de la burguesía caribeña, probando así porqué se le considera hoy una de las novelistas más dotadas de América Latina.

From the Back Cover: "Explora las compejidades del amor y de la traición, la manera irónica en que las decisiones políticas conforman la identidad personal. Una muestra de talento expectacular." — The Miami Herald

"La revolución, el sexo, la política, el ballet, y la historia de una de las bailarinas más grandes del siglo XX, todo en una historia personal y convincente." — The New York Times Book Review

"Delicioso. El tema de Ferré, que trata con gran delicadeza, es en realidad las complejas exigencias de la lealtad." — The New Yorker

"La fuerza de Ferré como novelista yace en su descripción de la burguesía puertorriqueña."— The Los Angeles Times Book Review
