Book Description McGraw Hill, 1957. hardcover. 1st Edition. New York. 1957. McGraw Hill. 1st American Edition. Previous Owner's Inscription In Front, Otherwise Very Good In Worn Dustjacket. 173 pages. hardcover. Beatriz Guido (13 December 1924 – 4 March 1988) was an Argentine novelist and screenwriter. Guido was born in Rosario, Santa Fe Province, the daughter of architect Ángel Guido (renowned as the creator of the National Flag Memorial) and of Uruguayan actress Berta Eirin. She studied at the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Buenos Aires. She wrote her first novel, La casa del ángel, in 1954. She also wrote a short story named Usurpacion. Because of her outspoken anti-Peronism, she was branded a 'right-wing writer' and a 'false aristocrat' by the government of Juan Perón. In 1959 she married film director and screenwriter Leopoldo Torre Nilsson. She started working with her husband, who took several of her works to the screen. In 1984 she won the Konex Merit Diploma on Letters. That year she was appointed cultural attaché of the Argentine Embassy in Spain. She died of a heart attack in Madrid four years later, at the age of 63. Jacket design by Abner Graboff. keywords: 40293. inventory # 14004. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Here in THE HOUSE OF THE ANGEL lives Ana Castro, seeing the outside world as a strange, a mysterious and fascinating place. She is not yet sixteen, the highly imaginative and romantic daughter of a man prominent in government. Her mother, an extremely strict and religious woman, keeps Ana’s life, as well as those of her sister and baby brother, closely sheltered. Here, in the strange, almost medieval atmosphere of aristocratic Buenos Aires society as it existed in the late twenties, is Ana, searching and turbulent in her transition from girl to woman, jumping from one rash emotion to another, hearing and feeling things she cannot understand, finding no reality to which she can hold. One day reality does come to THE HOUSE OF THE ANGEL with fierce and shattering effect. Dueling, though outlawed, is still practiced by aristocratic Argentine families, and one of the younger members of Ana’s father’s political party, Pablo Aguirre, has challenged a member of the opposition. Ana’s father arranges that the duel be held in the garden of THE HOUSE OF THE ANGEL. As the day of the duel draws near, Ana finds herself drawn to Pablo Aguirre, whom she does not know, and to his heroic cause. Her emotions are heightened by the tension between her father, who thrills at the thought of the duel, and her mother, hating this violence which Ana’s father has imposed on her house and children. The day and night of the duel are ones Ana will remember all her days, as she will remember Pablo Aguirre, as she will remember the scapular, as she will remember her vanished innocence. Beatriz Guido has written a haunting story of the innocence and illusions of youth brought face to face with violent reality. Told in a clear, almost classic style with rare precision and economy, THE HOUSE OF THE ANGEL places Miss Guido, a native of Buenos Aires, in the forefront of Latin American novelists. .
