Novel by Manuel Puig, published in 1976 as El beso de la mujer arana. Mostly consisting of dialogue between two men in an Argentine jail cell, the novel traces the development of their unlikely friendship. Molina is a middle-aged homosexual who passes the long hours in prison by acting out scenes from his favorite movies. Valentin is a young socialist revolutionary, who initially berates Molina for his effeminacy and his lack of political conviction. Sharing the hardships of a six-month prison term, the two eventually forge a strong relationship that becomes sexual. In an ironic role reversal at the end of the novel, Molina dies as a result of his involvement in politics while Valentin escapes the pain of torture by retreating into a dream world. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

The shipping from owlsbooks was horrid. I ordered two day shipping, since I have prime and the book was prime eligible. I ordered the 13th, slated to arrive the 15th, well, I got it the 18th. Not pleased whatsoever.
However my rating is solely for the book, not the shipping. Shipping is 1 star, book is 5.
