An erotic novel by Mexican author Luisa Valenzuela. A prominent, Argentinean anthropologist living in New York is faced with the resurfacing of a hidden past, one that she created by writing false stories of her sexual adventures in letters to please her long-distance husband.

Description in Spanish:
Narrada como un viaje a través del erotismo, cuenta la historia de una antropóloga argentina que vive en Nueva York y de repente se reencuentra con un pasado oculto, falsamente descrito en las numerosas cartas que años atrás remitió a su marido en Buenos Aires. A sus cuarenta años, esta mujer se enfrenta con el recuerdo de inventados testimonios sobre múltiples encuentros sexuales en los más diversos puntos del planeta, escritos en su momento para la extraña complacencia de Facundo Zuberbühler, el maduro profesor universitario con quien de joven se casó en secreto.


About Luisa Valenzuela

See more books from this Author
Luisa Valenzuela is one of the many women who have emerged as major voices in Latin American fiction. Her elliptic metaphoric pieces broaden the definitions of short story and novel. Strange Things Happen Here (1977) is close to an allegory of the Argentine political situation, but it shuns conventional realism to blur reality in a hallucinatory style. Julio Cortazar said of Valenzuela that she lucidly charts "the seldom-chosen course of a woman deeply anchored in her condition, conscious of discriminations that are still horrible all over our continent, but, at the same time, filled with joy in life that permits her to surmount both the elementary stages of protest and an overestimation of women in order to put herself on a perfectly equal footing with any literature---masculine or not.
