about this book

El Beso De La Mujer Arana is a graceful, intensely compelling novel about love and victimization. In an Argentine prison, two men share a cell: Molina, a gay window dresser, and Valentin, a fiercely dogmatic revolutionary haunted by memories of a woman he left for the cause. Both are gradually transformed by their guarded, but growing friendship and by Molina's obsession with the fantasy and romance of the movies.Translated by Thomas Colchie.
