Cuando Guillermo Cabrera Infante leyó La traición de Rita Hayworth, le "cutivó no sólo su encanto oral sino ver que era una novela con páginas de celuloide: la fábrica de la trama era el cine".

Sangre de amor correspondido by Manuel Puig( Book )

68 editions published between 1897 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This inventive novel is a series of questions and confessional answers, an internal dialogue between Josemar, a construction worker, and Maria, a privileged young woman. Looking back at the teenage passion they shared from the remove of ten years, they try to reconstruct their story despite the obstacles of times passage, societal disapproval, and family pressure. Set in a provincial Brazilian town, Blood of Requited Love explores memory and its failings, self-deception and its costs, and the hidden manacles of machismo. Back in print after being unavailable for several years, this novel is a moving work."--BOOK JACKET
The Buenos Aires affair : a detective novel by Manuel Puig( Book )

103 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,203 WorldCat member 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 )

99 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,000 WorldCat member 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 )

10 editions published between 1982 and 1999 in English and Hebrew and held by 620 WorldCat member 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

Under a mantle of stars : a play in two acts by Manuel Puig( Book )

8 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not long before his untimely death, Manuel Puig revised Under a Mantle of Stars, which is his first play written directly for the stage. Now available in this new edition with all of Puig's changes and a translator's note, Under a Mantle of Stars proclaims Puig the master of a Pirandellian world all his own, a world of fright and the frightfully funny, one where the characters slip among fantasies that blend elegiac desire with fierce lust. At once tender, cruel, and hilarious, Under a Mantle of Stars distills essential Puig."--BOOK JACKET

What emerges is a brilliant, acid-sharp portrait of a man driven by fear into a life of self-deception"--Container
