Pubis Angelical

(1986)
A novel by

 
 
In this artful fusion of espionage thriller and science fiction, Manuel Puig tells one story shared by three women - an actress in the 1930s, living in her husband's fairy-tale castle; a young woman in Mexico City in the 1970s, convalescing in a hospital; and a futuristic cyborg sex slave, occupying an artificial landscape. In the haunting and mysterious language for which he is renowned, Puig explores the links between these women, as well as the links between genders and generations.
