"New York City. Three A.M. The present. A man emerges from a building, a revolver in his pocket. Upstairs, in her apartment, alone in her bed, lies a woman - an actress the man met for the first time earlier that evening. She is dead. There is no motive, no history.

"Clara is a free spirited young woman, a prostitute in Buenos Aires. She is full of vague plans and dreams, and tries to shield herself from an ominous world. Clara is brought to life by Latin American master novelist Luisa Valenzuela, who has created her as a flesh-and-blood character. Clara, answering to her own laws, reacts with inner strength and autonomy. And she may even save herself from certain death." "Clara mixes social commentary with tender humor. Its lively spontaneity captures a certain segment of humanity in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the turbulent 1950's."--Jacket
