Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'El Beso de la mujer Arana' es una elegante y fascinante novela sobre el amor y la victimizacion. En una carce argentina, dos hombres comparten una celda: Molina, un disenador de escaparates homosexual que es egoista, auto-denigrante y al mismo tiempo encantador; y Valentin, un refolucionario articulado y ferozmente dogmatico obsesionado con la memoria de la mujer que abandono por la causa. Ambos son gradualmente tranformados por su cautelosa pero creciente amistad y por la obsesion de Molina con la fantasia y el romance del cine.
