Unici personaggi maschili di spessore sono Carlos, enigmatico e sfuggente, e il dittatore Pinoc Una storia d’amore originale e permeata di tristezza, sullo sfondo della dittatura di Pinochet. Nel Cile di Carlos, giovane rivoluzionario che veste i panni dello studente impegnato, ma che appartiene al fronte patriottico Manuel Rodriguez.

I admire the bravo, but the satire is hit and miss and the narrator too much a mess in a dress. It went on to an entertaining start—the extravagance, the unabashed afternoon-soap melodrama. And with that respectful scar she had learned to live, as one learns lembeel live with a clawed hand, stroking it, taming its fierceness, smoothing down its sharp nails, growing accustomed to its violent blows, learning to enjoy its sexual scratch as the only possible expression of affection.

If it can’t avoid being reminiscent of Puig’s Kiss of the Spider Woman in its admixture of an aging, effeminate, romanticizing homosexual known only via her street name of the Queen of the Corner and a young Marxist revolutionary part of the plot to assassinate Pinochetit retains its own identity and eschews the expected tragic ending for something that – if not quite ‘happy’ – is at least bittersweet.


Tengo miedo torero

The Queen of the Corner has a certain antic insanity, while llbro beloved Carlos remains out-of-focus — as he would, being mostly her projection.

E lei non vuol sapere altro.

In questa Santiago che grida contro i soprusi, Fata accoglie nel suo piccolo regno Carlos, i suoi compagni e le numerose casse.

SantiagoChile Santiago de ChileChile. Oct 25, Cory rated it it was amazing Shelves: E un romanzo tutto al femminile, con la Fata che occupa integralmente la scena. Want to Read saving…. In one of the city’s many poor neighborhoods works the Queen of the Corner, a hopeless and lonely romantic who embroiders linens for the wealthy and listens to boleros to drown out the gunshots and rioting in the streets.

Lemenel short but colorful story details Pinochet’s struggle to maintain power and the radicals who wish torro oust him.

Want to Read saving… Error rating book. Una storia d’amore originale e permeata di tristezza, sullo sfondo della dittatura di Pinochet.

Interspersed with the Queen’s story, are little vignettes of domestic disharmony between the Dictator and his chatty wife, which help illuminate the politics of the day. I enjoyed some of the theatrics.

Jul 19, Joseph Schreiber rated it it was amazing. It just needs to be read. Aug 04, Ryan rated it it was amazing. Santiago glitters in the night. For him to rip off her clothes, strip her pedrl, leave her as naked as an ill-used virgin.

What ticked me off though was the limited omniscience; yengo was too convenient that I felt cheated somehow. In Latin American literature the locus classicus is Manual Puig’s Kiss of the Spiderwoman – Molina the gusher, Valent Here are characters we’ve seen before — the timorous middle-aged homosexual who thinks of himself as “she” — “the world’s most foolish faggot, its silliest sissy queer” — and the doomed macho activist whom fascism has tossed her way.


Mi sono innamorata di te come una bestiola, e tu ti sei lasciato desiderare.

Oct 23, RJ rated it it was amazing Shelves: Return to Book Page. It looks like the last great city of the southern hemisphere. Irriverente, appassionata e commovente. My Tender Matador is an extraordinary novel of mieddo and forbidden love, and a stirring portrait of Chile at an historical crossroads.

But it speaks volumes beyond its capacity to femme-y, consummately betrayed femme queers like me. Dec 19, Athena rated it it was amazing Shelves: There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Non per bigotteria, ma almeno un paio di scene muedo sesso sono troppo esplicite e stonano rispetto all’atmosfera “flou” che permea il libro ed i suoi personaggi. Protagonista la “Fata dell’angolo”, un gay anagraficamente maschio ma intimamente femmina. The language is, at times, bewildering—the gaudy, overstated description of the rooftop apartment seems decorated, like the apartment, a poverty-stricken attempt at beauty—the blatancy of the artifice constitutes the success of the art.

It was an engaging read, and I wasn’t really sure at any point how things would unfold or where Lemebel was taking us. A page, peerless ligro nothing short of astonishing. Mentre i tumulti del paese si sincronizzano sulla confusione del cuore della Fata, trova spazio una satirica parodia che coglie il dittatore macellaio in un intimo fatto di vigliaccheria e sottomissione ad una moglie dispotica.

Loca del Frente, somos tus herederas. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
