Description
Alternately melancholy and hilarious, this 1969 novel by the author of Kiss of the Spider Woman concerns Juan Carlos Etchepare, a 29-year-old Casanova dying of consumption, who looks on while those who loved and were spurned by him move on into workaday lives and unhappy marriages. Manuel Puig's 1969 melodrama is composed of letters, newspaper clippings, police reports, diary entries, and quotations from vintage Hollywood films.

"Puig’s work is among the most original of the final years of the 20th century."—Mario Vargas Llosa
