If you're interested in the ethics of alterity, this book is a fascinating read. One of the characters is far too infatuated with Freud, which can be a bit distracting, but the core story is one of two people doing their best to be completely ethical. What makes the story fascinating is that Puig imagines a relationship where the boundary between self and other, past and present have to be ruptured. In that sense, this book is better than Kiss of the Spider Woman, but it also lacks the intrigue of the earlier novel. More when I finish it.
