In this story of a love triangle between a woman and two brothers, Bayly mercilessly and with dark irony portrays the little miseries and pettinesses of Latin America's upper class.

Mad Pancho is a dim, unattractive, dirty and stuttering man who also suffers from uncontrollable lust. Just as life in a faraway hacienda seems to be putting his existence back in order, the agrarian reform forces him to return to Lima. Unable to adapt to the customs of the bourgeoisie, he becomes a marijuana addict, a hippie. After burning his ID papers, he abandons his family and flees to the mountains in search of an ever elusive peace. El cojo y el loco is the brutal and dizzying story of the life of two upper-class young men from Lima. Victims of the cruelty and humiliation of their parents, they become unscrupulous men, prepared to do away with everything that stands in their way. Their quality as outcasts ultimately comes from the inconsistencies between their physical traits a limp, a stutter and the values of their social class, where all that is different is considered abnormal, a deformity and a stain on the family name and, as such, must be kept hidden

Una mañana, una llamada telefónica y una revelación. El tablero político podría cambiar de manera imprevista; los resultados de las elecciones presidenciales, dentro de solo un mes, ahora son improbables. El candidato favorito, el dueño del canal de televisión y el periodista estrella forman el triunvirato que ha sido puesto en jaque por una niña de apenas catorce años, a la que le urge contar su verdad: que no ha sido reconocida, que ha sido incluso negada, pero que su padre sí existe y se llama Alcides Tudela, el hombre que tal vez gobernará el Perú durante los próximos cinco años. En La lluvia del tiempo, Jaime Bayly retrata, o más bien devela, el laberíntico mundo del periodismo televisivo, enfocando las flaquezas, las rivalidades, los arreglos y las deslealtades detrás de cámaras, para contar la historia secreta de los grandes canales de la televisión peruana, desde sus inseguros inicios frente a la radio, hasta su poderoso presente, en el que a menudo determinan el futuro de los políticos y del país. En esta fascinante historia sobre los entresijos del poder en el Perú y el modo como el tiempo, a la manera de una lluvia persistente, corrompe y erosiona el carácter moral de sus personajes, Bayly nos ofrece su mejor novela

"What awaits writer-turned-murderer Javier Garces in Buenos Aires? First, there is the city with its cobbled streets, its cemetery and river, a place where he feels right at home, where he is neither a foreigner nor an intruder. Then, there are all those Argentines with their endless chatter, their arrogance and charm, their loud-mouthed chaos. Finally, and to his heartfelt regret, there are still some scores to be settled. What choice is there? If he wants to live he has to take the life of others, as he'll do to certain characters he either hates or despises. The vain bookstore owner, a famous and belligerent radio and television reporter, the handsome owner of a high-end restaurant, a talented and dissolute actor, and a hateful neighbor are part of Javier Garces' Argentine selection. While he plots and carries out his missions in wild and appalling episodes, the bloody thread that has dogged him since Lima is about to catch up to him. With Escupirán sobre mi tumba, Jaime Bayly concludes the Morirás mañana trilogy. Here ends the long and gruesome journey that began in Lima, passed through Chile and culminated in Buenos Aires. A bloody expedition in which our main character finished off his enemies while painting a vivid fresco of the largest cities in the region, a fresco that gazes past architecture and geography to portray the soul of its people"
