This study of the Argentinian writer, Manuel Puig, is written for an English-speaking audience and analyzes aspects of his novels, summarizes the important body of criticism which is Spanish, and provides a biographical sketch of the man. Professor Lavers makes available for the first time in English selections from interviews with the writer, as well as readings from his books. The author has also written a novel, "The Northwest Passage", and a biography, "Jerzy Kosinski".

About the Author

Norman Lavers is Professor of English at Arkansas State University. Among his books are "Jerzy Kosinski "(Twayne, 1982) an the novel "The Northwest Passage "(New York: Fiction Collective, 1984).


"Lavers's short but illustrative study shows how pop culture has a dual function in Puig's works. First, it provides material for experiments with the traditional authorial voice. Second, it moves the reader to a world of social restrictions, which tightly controls people's behavior in the modern society. Highly recommended to the general reader interested in the Latin American novel."--Choice
