Kiss of the spider woman by Manuel Puig( Book )

314 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 4,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometimes they talk all night long. In the still darkness of their cell, Molina re-weaves the glittering and fragile stories of the film he loves, and the cynical Valentin listens. Valentin believes in the just cause which makes all suffering bearable; Molina believes in the magic of love which makes all else endurable. Each has always been alone, and always - especially now - in danger of betrayal. But in cell, each surrenders to the other something of himself that he has never surrendered before

The Buenos Aires affair : a detective novel by Manuel Puig( Book )

93 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,236 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

"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

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