"A tantalizingly ambiguous web of deceit, intrigue, and obsession, its layers of meaning gradually revealed. . . . The reader is left in delicious puzzlement."-Publishers Weekly

Mascara, Ariel Dorfman's haunting English-language debut novel, delves into the dark terrain of identity and disguise when the lives of three people collide. A nameless man with a face no one remembers has the devastating ability to see and capture on film the brutal truths lurking inside each person he encounters. Oriana, a beautiful woman with the memory of an innocent child, is relentlessly pursued by mysterious figures from her past. Doctor Mavirelli is a brilliant and power-hungry plastic surgeon who controls society's most prominent figures by controlling their most important asset: their faces. As their three fates cross, present and past deceptions unravel upon each other until the characters find themselves irrevocably unmasked.
