The classic book originally released in 1979 and made into a film starring William Hurt in 1985.
In an Argentine prison, the growing friendship between a thirty-seven year-old homosexual, Molina, and a young Marxist, Valentin is threatened when police officials start pressuring Molina to spy against Valentin.
Valentin and Molina seemingly share little other than a cell in this queer classic ahead of its time.
Sometimes they talk all night long.
In the still darkness of their Buenos Aires prison cell, Molina re-weaves the glittering and fragile stories of the film he loves, and the cynical Valentin listens. Valentin believes in the just cause that makes all suffering bearable; Molina believes in the magic of love that makes all else endurable. Though they seemingly share little other than a cell, the two form a bond so intimate - and a relationship so profoundly affecting - that only the other could understand.
'A visionary work that breathed life into certain dimensions of human possibility long before society at large was prepared to imagine them.'
arolina de Robertis, Los Angeles Review of Books
'Dazzling... a triumph'
