By Manuel Puig

Finally again in print, Manuel Puig's celebrated first novel is a startling anatomy of a small city in thrall to its personal petty lusts, betrayals, scandals, thefts, and gossip--but such a lot of all, to the films. Centering round a boy named Toto, aware of the town's secrets and techniques and consistently wanting to fill within the gruesome or frightening moments of his formative years with Hollywood-inspired fable, Betrayed via Rita Hayworth is a symphony of upset, comedian, sour, and bawdy voices, all hemmed in via life's refusal to act just like the silver monitor, and could be the funniest and such a lot sincere coming-of-age tale of its time.
