International Writing by Women / Latin America

Translated from Spanish by Psiche Hughes

Sex and power are dominant themes in this innovative novel by a major feminist writer, an exile from Uruguay now living in Spain. Her wandering hero refuses to conform to the established order that descends into military terror and machismo.

"To read this marvellous novel is to embark upon a voyage through the many layers of Western culture... through centuries of dreams and self-doubts."
