Nobel Prize author Mario Vargas Llosa recommends we all read, Manuel Puig and the Spiderwoman: His Life and Fictions by our multi-award winning Professor Emerita Suzanne Jill Levine! As Vargas Llosa indicates, Manuel Puig and the Spiderwoman matters for Latin American culture and literature in Spanish, for Gay/Queer rights, for celebration of the Movies, and because Manuel Puig was a true original, a brilliant artist.
