"The story is set in Mexico, Hollywood, and New York - a simple, primitive scene on the one hand, a brilliant, sophisticated one on the other. There are tenderness and beauty in the book, and also murder and vice. The arts of the film, the opera, and the bullfight are in it, and an incredible understanding of the strange nature of the human animal. But above all, a story is in it, a story full of fury and terror and love, which once begun must be finished and once read will be remembered." (from the jacket). Bookseller Inventory # I80915
