G. M. Camargo, el todopoderoso director de un diario de Buenos Aires, se obsesiona por Reina Remis, una periodista de talento a la que dobla en edad. Su soberbia le impide ver que los sentimientos ajenos no están bajo su dominio, y esa ceguera lo sume en una historia de amor de la que saldrá transfigurado. A partir de esa intriga clásica, Tomás Eloy Martinez construye una novela irresistible sobre el deseo, el poder y la identidad. Casi todo lo que sucede, sucede dos veces, de un modo siempre más oscuro y desconcertante. La corrupción política y la impunidad en un país que se va viniendo abajo, y el creciente delirio erótico, van dibujando un friso cuyo final, imprevisible, arrastra a los lectores otra vez a la primera línea del libro, atrapados por una historia que se parece tanto a la vida.

Esta es una novela sobre el ascenso de una mujer por medio de un hombre que se ha obsesionado con ella, y como ese vuelo la puede llevara la catástrofe. Me gustó mucho el lenguaje de este autor, y eso me animó a leer otra cosa de él.

About the author (2002)

Tomás Eloy Martínez was born in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina on July 16, 1934. He received an undergraduate degree in Spanish and Latin American literature from the National University of Tucumán and a master's degree from the University of Paris. He was a novelist, journalist, essayist and critic. In the early 1970s, he conducted long interviews with Juan Domingo Perón in Madrid, where the general was living in exile. In 1975, while eating lunch in a Buenos Aires restaurant, he received word that when he stepped outside, he would be assassinated by a right-wing paramilitary group. Since there was no back door, he decided to document his own murder and phoned his newspaper requesting a photographer. When a swarm of photographers descended, the assassins scattered. He fled the country and eventually ended up in the United States, where he taught at the University of Maryland in the mid-1980s. His works include The Perón Novel (La Novela de Perón), Santa Evita, and The Tango Singer (El Cantor de Tango). He taught at Rutgers University from 1995 until his death. He died as the result of a brain tumor on January 31, 2010 at the age of 75.
