Description
The inspiration for the Academy Award–winning film of the same name, Manuel Puig's 1976 novel is written as an extended dialogue between two prisoners, a young political activist named Valentín and the gay window dresser who shares his cell, Molina. At first seeming to be total opposites—(Valentín believes in the just cause which makes all suffering bearable, while Molina believes in the magic of love which makes all else endurable)—the two forge an unexpectedly intimate relationship that changes them both, as Molina reweaves the glittering and fragile stories of the films he loves, and the cynical Valentín listens.
