Almost the entire book consists of conversations betweent two men, Ramirez and Larry, taken place in New York City. Ramirez is a 74-year old man from Argentina who has lost most of his memory and is now in a wheelchair. Larry is a 36-year old guy (with a Ph.D. in history but now is jobless) who is paid to push Ramirez around three times a week. Following their conversation, the readers will figure out the identities of these two people, their personalities, their past, their dreams, their regrets, their views on life, work, politics, love, sex, etc., as well as what is happening to/around them at that time.
This is my first Puig's book. I picked it because of the sinister title. This book shows that Puig has a creative way to construct the plot and a deep understanding of human minds. Very often I stop and smile at the dialogue, because I am reminded of the real way that people talk: sometimes inefficient and frustrating.
My friend recommends all his other books, incudling Kiss of the Spider Woman and The Buenos Aries Affair. This book is good enough for me to go on reading his other ones. That's all I have to say about this book.
