Description
This "apocryphal autobiography" of Argentinean Luisa Valenzuela is her candid fantasia of the ten years she lived in New York City, arranged as a dialogue between the sometimes harmonious, sometimes contradictory worlds of writing and human interaction. Here, Valenzuela confronts her own dark desires: her need for sexual fulfillment and human tenderness, her indecisiveness about who or what she truly wants, and her compulsion to keep a written record of all her triumphs and disasters, encounters and obsessions.

"Valenzuela believes the primary purpose of literature is to disturb, to agitate … by questioning our perception of reality."—Ilan Stavans
