9780099351108: Eternal Curse on the Reader of These Pages (Arena Books)

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-and-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.

Review:

Novel by Manuel Puig, written in English and then translated by the author as Maldicion eterna a quien lea estas paginas (1980). With the exception of the letters that form the epilogue, the novel consists entirely of dialogue between two men in New York City--an elderly Argentine invalid and the young American who cares for him. Their relationship is revealed through a dense, sometimes confusing narrative that blends reality and fantasy. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
