My Tender Matador

Tengo miedo torero

The novel revolves around a love story set in Santiago, Chile, in 1986, the year of an attempt on the life of Pinochet. A young man from the Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front, a participant in the action, develops a relationship with a homosexual, ostensibly in order to use his house to store weapons and hold meetings. Both the attempt on Pinochet's life and the relationship between the two men go unfulfilled. The no-vel and its cast of carnivalesque and devastatingly tragicomic characters, is provocative and unorthodox. It confirms the extraordinary and artistry of this daring and passionate author.
