Recommends it for: yes
una autobiografia en la que el autor narra tambien un trozo de la vida de grandes autores homosexuales, tales como Manuel Puig, Reinaldo Arenas y Federico Garcia Lorca. una obra muy simpatica.

Detalles hermosos, duros, geniales de su propia vida, nos develan a un escritor homosexual que, a la vez, narra la vida de otros tres escritores homosexuales grandes y talentosos: Manuel Puig, Reinaldo Arenas y Federico García Lorca.
