    Incre blemente y a pesar de la poca fe que ten a en el libro, me gust mucho Encontr una genialidad distinta a la deEl beso de la mujer ara a prefiero esa novela antes que esta , as queThe Buenos Aires Affairno me decepcion del todo.A medida que lo iba leyendo, llegu a creer que este libro se trataba b sicamente de las represiones y de las experiencias sexuales de los personajes cosa que me molesta, porque si quisiera leer sobre eso me comprar a un libro de g nero er tico y adi s Sin embargo, res [...]

    This detective story starts with the mother of the lead female character discovering that her daughter is missing After the discovery, the bulk of the first half of the novel are fairly compelling character studies of the victim and the kidnapper Puig gives detailed background information on each character, formatted like a police report It s focused and doesn t mention clich d childhood moments for their supposed sentimental value, as is sometimes the tendency when writers summarize big gaps of [...]

    I was interested in reading the novels of Mauel Puig after learning Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai used some of them for inspiration for his films The first one I read was Heartbreak Tango, which was inspiration for Wong s Days of Being Wild, and was experimental in form This novel, The Buenos Aires Affair, is the story of an unhealthy love affair between an artist, Gladys D Onofrio and an art critic Leo Druscovich in Argentina This destructive relationship was part of the inspiration for Wong [...]


    Apenas lo compr en una segunda en Puebla y tengo ciertas expectativas que espero cumpla por lo pronto la edici n es tan vintage que seguro lucir bien en cualquier librero Qui n dijo que la literatura no entra por la vista Se toma su tiempo Puig con sus personajes, muy engaging ellos, pero algo me hizo perder un poco el inter s al fina.

    Me encanta la narrativa de Manuel Puig Recomiendo mucho esta obra sobre todo por las diferentes formas en como se puede narrar una novela polic aca.

    First read this almost a decade ago, but in the meantime forgot just how awesome it really is It s like a detective novel told through the forms of Joyce s Ulysses Despite the fairly disturbing story at the center of this, it s a pretty fun, pretty interesting book I want to write , but I don t have the book here with me One of Puig s best Along with Heartbreak Tango, which I ll be rereading in the very near future.

    A decir verdad es un libro con una impronta muy pesada, fuerte, visceral, emocionante Disfrutable en su desarrollo pero sostengo que mantiene fallas en la historia.De todos modos qui n soy yo para criticar a Puig


    For many years my determination was to read a book in the language that it was written if I possibly couldd I ve got a bit lazy about that French I took in school to quite a high level but never won that little pot of money to visit France so never did I lost heart a bit when richer kids went off for summer holidays and came back hugely improved while I just sat there So I read a bit Mouloud Feraoun and Assia Djebar inspired me to get some Algerian books in French, but I haven t yet broached the [...]

    Read this in Spanish y all.I love Puig and this tome has the changes in style and shifts in points of view that one would expect The Ex Deus Machina to finish off the murder Leopoldo was unexpected and not too odd given the tone of this story On an emotional level, just like with Ensayo de un Crimen, when the reader knows a lot and gets to have feelings for the killer, so than the victim, it creates an odd tension that I m not sure I like Soy fan de Puig y este libro, como sus otros, contiene c [...]


    I can t come up with a good reason for this book to exist It s boring But it s ART Yeah, but it s boring.

    Olavo Soares

    read in Portuguese Pros the author is an extremely talented writer, and has a very impressing writing technique Almost every chapter has a distinctive style His writing is lively, full of passion and sometimes humor Cons since every chapter has a different structure, the formal structure of the whole work is not very well balanced at least in my humble point of view The stylistic tour de force adopted by Puig seems pointless to me, as if the author were trying to show off Too many references to [...]


    The Buenos Aires Affair functions as a psychological social collage of the characters leading up to, during, and after an artist going missing The novel is a piece of detective work, gathering profiles and histories, as well as conversations and dreams that provide motivating factors Puig is at times graphic in his descriptions of sexuality and violence, but never to a gratuitous degree the violence amd sexuality are all a necessary part of the character sketch This is a precursor to Bolano, and [...]


    I enjoyed this book intermittently, mainly in its exploitation of a diversity of genres, including stream of consciousness, operatic dialogue, psychoanalytic observation points There were times when I lost the thread altogether but kept on reading for the sheer pleasure of the word The characters however and their sexual internal dialogues were not that special It is clear there is a wealth of references to possibly the author s own experience on the couch not surprising seeing Argentina s love [...]


    Lo empec despu s de haber le do El beso de la mujer ara a y Boquitas pintadas Como sucede tambi n en esas novelas, en The Buenos Aires affair Puig tambi n juega con los g neros La trama se construye a partir de conversaciones telef nicas, recortes de diario, observaciones, percepciones de los personajes, etc Esa falta de certeza en la narraci n es lo que hace que Puig sea uno de mis autores preferidos sin embargo, esta novela no cumpli con mis expectativas y disfrut mucho m s las novelas que le [...]


    No me gust El experimentalismo formal, que consiste en mezclar varias escrituras, no tiene necesidad Por ejemplo, la relaci n del cad ver de Leo no tiene que tomar la forma de informe, tal como lo hace el texto si la contara directamente el narrador mismo no habr a ning n problema A pesar de su apariencia vanguardista, The Buenos Aires Affair es una obra conservadora, ni m s ni menos Una melodrama en el sentido peyorativo de la palabra superficial en el sentido peyorativo de la palabra.


    Puig es de mis favoritos escritores, este es el cuarto libro de l y no me desilusiono Es sobre un asesinato donde como es costumbre en Puig, utiliza muchos diferentes estilos de contar, dividi en dos partes el libro, en donde la primera parte es mejor Cuenta las frustraciones sexuales de los protagonistas la da Gladys le sali mejor y para mi gusto en el final fall Libro diferente, como todos los de Puig, para ser novela de asesinato.

    Alfonso Forssell

    Este es el primer libro de Puig que leo, elegido casi al azar, si es que el azar existe en la relaci n entre el lector y el libro Narrador de muchos recursos, apreci el juego de desplazamientos que intenta y a tiempos logra en el g nero detectivesco, pero las p ginas mejor logradas son las convencionales , es decir, donde se dedica a narrar una historia.


    Una reivindicaci n de lo marginal en la literatura, que ahora podr a parecer un lugar com n de mucha literatura contempor nea, pero para su poca implica todo un cambio de pensamiento Una parte de la nueva novela latinoamericana que no se abre a ser le da ante el resto del mundo sino una que se abre a recibir objetos culturales del mundo, el cine, la publicidad, la m sica

    Alex Lang

    Manuel Puig is the master of cannibalizing genre fiction with a psychoanalytic twist This Freudian detective story manages to critique Freud and turn the generic tropes of the detective story on their head Not my favorite Puig but even a meh Puig is better than almost anything else.


    I was expecting so much from a banned book I got tired trying to follow his confused plot and shifts in POV.

    Carlos Hugo Winckler Godinho

    Fora o final batidinho, achei interessante.


    Me encant Al parecer no es el libro m s valorado de Puig, as que ahora tengo m s ganas de leer el resto de sus obras

    Marius van Blerck

    The underlying concept was interesting but disturbing However, the style of narrative was too disjointed for my liking.


    Impressionistic tale of unhealthy obsessions.


    A sexually charged thriller that will leave you wondering the difference between fantasy and reality.

    I wrote the introduction to this edition Great book


    i read this pre dalkey, but a fantastic detective novel for the dalkey archive set xxx in places puig is of kiss of the spider woman fame.


    What can I say Puig is one of the finest Argentine writers This book is a must read for those who love to take risks Real literature, not suitable for squeamish readers.

    Julian Kim

    Puig is a master of the slightly surreal mystery genre I love his depictions of Buenos Aires and the background colors of his stories.
