Kiss of the spider woman by Manuel Puig( Book )

328 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 4,300 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 )

91 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,197 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

Maldición eterna a quien lea estas páginas by Manuel Puig( Book )

50 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How simplicity trumps complexity in nature, business, and life. We struggle to manage complexity every day. We follow intricate diets to lose weight, juggle multiple remotes to operate our home entertainment systems, face proliferating data at the office, and hack through thickets of regulation at tax time. But complexity isn't destiny. Sull and Eisenhardt argue there's a better way: By developing a few simple yet effective rules, you can tackle even the most complex problems. Simple rules are a hands-on tool to achieve some of our most pressing personal and professional objectives, from overcoming insomnia to becoming a better manager or a smarter investor. Simple rules can help solve some of our most urgent social challenges from setting interest rates at the Federal Reserve to protecting endangered marine wildlife along California's coast. Drawing on more than a decade of rigorous research, the authors provide a clear framework for developing effective rules and making them better over time. They find insights in unexpected places, from the way Tina Fey codified her experience working at Saturday Night Live into rules for producing 30 Rock (rule five: never tell a crazy person he's crazy) to burglars' rules to choose a house to rob ("avoid houses with a car parked outside") to Japanese engineers using the foraging rules of slime molds to optimize Tokyo's rail system. Whether you're struggling with information overload, pursuing opportunities with limited resources, or just trying to change your bad habits, Simple Rules provides a powerful way to tame complexity.

Eternal curse on the reader of these pages by Manuel Puig( Book )

11 editions published between 1982 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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-out-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."--BOOK JACKET
