Panic signs by Cristina Peri Rossi( )

22 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With Panic Signs, English readers have access to an important Latin American author, Cristina Peri Rossi, whose work engages with issues of identity (gender, national, cultural, sexual) and authority (political, societal, familial), as it critiques all representative structures that would limit individual freedom. Panic Signs gives readers a sense of the tense political climate in Uruguay just prior to the military takeover, with people living under the threat of house invasions, random detention and questioning by the police, and torture."--BOOK JACKET

Solitaire of love by Cristina Peri Rossi( Book )

38 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Solitaire of Love explores the sense of emotional exile that sexual passion can evoke. Tracing the course of a relationship as it evolves into uncompromising self-destruction, the narrator of Solitaire of Love becomes addicted to his own passion and to the body of his beloved. Erotic, romantic love becomes bewitchment, producing a heightened state where time is measured in the rhythms of a chosen body and pride becomes subservient to obsession. The specifics of this other body trump any claim to ordinary existence for the narrator, as sex becomes a kind of idolatrous slavery and love becomes a mechanism for self-immolation. As in Peri Rossi's other works, an ambiguous sense of gender and sexuality arise from her uniquely experimental prose and mystically erotic logic. Language is subsumed into this process as a way to bear witness, to transfix and capture the love object. The limbo of obsession, as described by Peri Rossi, creates an infantilizing brand of loneliness, broken by flashes of joy, insight, fury, and fear."--Jacket

Desastres íntimos by Cristina Peri Rossi( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in Spanish and English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this modern age, when the means of communication have turned individual and collective history into a spectacle, literature is the privileged space of subjectivity. This book allows us to peer into the fascinating inner world of characters trapped in their particular deliriums: a club of fetishists who discuss their sexual manias, a man in love with a whale-woman, a man whose wife has left him for another woman, and a beautiful secretary who is also a mother feeling asphyxiated by her family. Readers, no matter how they see themselves and what their sexual preferences may be, will experience the same sensation." -- Back cover
