Synopsis

"This horrifying yet humorous novel depicts life in a terrifying, sexually charged world of dictatorships and disappearances." - "Library Journal". This work is translated by Cola Franzen. "This joyful account, written with contagious pleasure and destined as a gift for the reader, contains such a mix of rose-color romance and off-colored smut, the ridiculous sublime, so much punch that we find ourselves, reader and author, immersed by the torrent of figures." - Saul Yurkievich, University of Paris. "A perfect delight." - Francine Masiello, author of "Between Civilization and Barbarism: Women, Nation, and Literary Culture in Modern Argentina" (Nebraska, 1992). Alicia Borinsky grew up in Buenos Aires in the heyday of the Peronist era and belongs to the generation of Argentinean writers that includes Luisa Valenzuela and Ricardo Piglia. She is the author of seven books of poetry, fiction, and criticism, and is a professor of Latin American and comparative literature at Boston University. Cola Franzen's translations include twelve books of poetry and prose from Spanish.
