"Brillante imagen de una psicosis nacional. Obra vividamente escrita."

-- Jay Cantor, en The New York Times

Un exito instantaneo en America Latina, La novela de Peron, escrita por el periodista y novelista argentino Tomas Eloy Martinez, antes de la publicacion de su renombrada Santa Evita, es una ficcion que cuenta la verdad. Combinando articulos de diario, fotos, testimonios y entrevistas del autor con el mismo Peron, con ficciones fantasticas, Martinez construye una obra audaz y potente que es a la vez un retrato brillante de Juan Peron, el dictador mas respetado y odiado en la historia de Argentina, y tambien una investigacion de los efectos devastadores y extranos del poder absoluto. Con su estilo unico, Martinez nos submerge en esta intriga donde la politica y la muerte son fuerzas eroticas. Un cuento historico de la vida de Juan Peron se convierte en una vista intima de este personaje quien hasta ahora ha sido tan enigmatico.

"Un texto increible, casi perfecto. Borges o Cortazar lo hubieran dado todo por hablerlo escrito." -- Augusto Roa Bastos

"Maravillosamente estructurada. Siniestra, graciosa, elegante.... Poblada de imagenes de un poder metaforico estremecedor." -- Village Voice
