The Nanny and the Iceberg Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conceived the night of Che Guevaras burial in 1967, Gabriel McKenzie is inextricably bound up in the history and politics of his native Chile. Twenty-four years on, and still a virgin, Gabriel returns from Manhattan exile to confront his legacy: a Don Juan father and a country preparing for the five-hundredth anniversary of Americas "discovery." Into Gabriels quest for manhood and identity enter one iceberg, a faithful if eccentric nanny, and a whole host of fantastical characters.

Synopsis:

Back in print, The Nanny and the Iceberg is Dorfman's dark comedy of politics, sex, and death. The virginal 23-year-old Gabriel McKenzie returns from exile in Manhattan to his native Chile to confront his complicated legacy, which includes a Don Juan father and a faithful, if eccentric, nanny.

Synopsis:

This dark comedy by Dorfman--called "one of the greatest Latin American novelists" by "Newsweek"--about a young 23-year-old man who returns from an exile in Manhattan to his native Chil to confront his complicated legacy is now back in print in this first-ever trade paperback edition.
