Manuel Puig: Poljubac žene pauka
El beso de la mujer araña argentinskog pisca Manuela Puiga štampan je prvi put 1976. godine. Radnja romana prati dvojicu zatvorenika Molina i Valentina, i njihov odnos u zatvoru. Molina je feminizirani homoseksualac, dekorater izloga, koji je osuđen zbog zavođenja maloletnika, dok je Valentin politički zatvorenik koji pripada revolucionarnoj grupi.
The novel's form is unusual in that there is no traditional narrative voice, one of the primary features of fiction. It is written in large part as dialogue, without any indication of who is speaking, except for a dash (-) to show a change of speaker. There are also parts of stream of consciousness. What is not written as dialogue or stream of consciousness is written as metafictional government documentation. The conversations between the characters, when not focused on the moment at hand, are recountings of films that Molina has seen, which act as a form of escape from their environment.
