Kiss of the spider woman by Manuel Puig( Book )
319 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 4,249 libraries worldwide
Sometimes they talk all night long. In the still darkness of their cell, Molina re-weaves the glittering and fragile stories of the film he loves, and the cynical Valentin listens. Valentin believes in the just cause which makes all suffering bearable; Molina believes in the magic of love which makes all else endurable. Each has always been alone, and always - especially now - in danger of betrayal. But in cell, each surrenders to the other something of himself that he has never surrendered before

The Buenos Aires affair : a detective novel by Manuel Puig( Book )
88 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,174 libraries worldwide
This masterful and ironic detective novel concerns the abduction of a woman, an impending murder, and the dim memories of a thousand old glamour queens-Garbo, Dietrich, Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworth-all combining to make a powerful portrait of two decidedly unglamorous lives: Gladys Hebe D'Onofrio, a lonely 35-year-old sculptor, tormented by her fantasies and perpetually in search of the ideal lover; and Leo Druscovich, an outwardly confident and successful art critic, deeply troubled by a terrible guilt that surfaces in his repeated sexual failures. Taking on, exchanging, and growing into the roles of victim and criminal, their lives presented through a variety of different kinds of evidence - lists, scribbled notes, transcripts, one-sided interrogations - these two lost souls gradually find themselves entirely dependent on one another . . . and heading towards precisely the sort of violent ending a detective novel demands
Pubis angelical : a novel by Manuel Puig( Book )
89 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 965 libraries worldwide
"In this artful fusion of espionage thriller and science fiction, Manuel Puig tells one story shared by three women -- an actress in the 1930s, living in her husband's fairy-tale castle; a young woman in Mexico City in the 1970s convalescing in a hospital; and a futuristic cyborg sex slave, occupying an artificial landscape. In the haunting and mysterious language for which he is renowned, Puing explores the links between these women, as well as the links between genders and generations."--Back cover

Eternal curse on the reader of these pages by Manuel Puig( Book )
11 editions published between 1982 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 626 libraries worldwide
"In his first novel in English, Manuel Puig strikes a balance between irony and sympathy as he tells of the dealings of two men whose deceptive reminiscences recall those of the characters in his better-known Kiss of the Spider Woman. Larry, a down-out-out writer, is paid to push a wheelchair-bound Argentine political exile, Ramirez, around Greenwich Village. Through their journeys and their conversations about sex and politics, we witness the collision of two "solitary fantasy systems," revealing the men to be enmeshed in the lies that make up their bitter, shadowy symbiosis."--BOOK JACKET
