By Manuel Puig

Finally again in print, Manuel Puig's celebrated first novel is a startling anatomy of a small city in thrall to its personal petty lusts, betrayals, scandals, thefts, and gossip--but such a lot of all, to the films. Centering round a boy named Toto, aware of the town's secrets and techniques and consistently wanting to fill within the gruesome or provoking moments of his formative years with Hollywood-inspired fable, Betrayed by means of Rita Hayworth is a symphony of upset, comedian, sour, and bawdy voices, all hemmed in through life's refusal to act just like the silver reveal, and could be the funniest and so much sincere coming-of-age tale of its time.
