Vásquez, Juan Gabriel, 1973- author.
©2013
139 pages ; 24 cm.
Juan Gabriel Vásquez retraces his most intense obsessions: the weight of the past, memory faults, how our lives intersect with the political world. But it is also a novel about the importance of opinion in our societies. In the demanding genre of the novel, which has given so many masterpieces in the Latin American tradition, Vásquez gives us his most intimate: an intense reflection on the weakness of public and private judgments on irreversible encounters.

"Naglakas-loob si Aira na tuluyang akitin si Miklos dahil na rin sa kakabuyo na malalapit niyang kaibigan. Nagkaroon pa sila ng lessons on Seduction 101 para maisakatuparan na ang Oplan: The Fall of Miklos. Pero rejection lang ang natanggap niya mula sa lalaki. Then came Jeffrey. Ang lalaking ayaw sa mga virgin. Naging magkaibigan sila at nagawa pa niyang ikuwento rito ang pang-aakit na ginawa niya kay Miklos. At si Jeffrey naman ang nagbigay sa kanya ng lessons. And she realized that was something they missed: They forgot to get a man's point of view on how to be seductive. This time kaya ay magtagumpay na si Aira? O babastedin pa rin siya ni Miklos?" -- Back cover.
