Dorfman marvelously tangles this story up with the intricacies of post-Pinochet Chilean politics. Gabriel was conceived the night of Che Guevara's burial. The next day, his father bet his best friend that he would have sex every day for the next 25 years, while his friend bet that he would become the most powerful man in the country.

Into Gabriel’s quest for manhood and identity enter one iceberg, a faithful if eccentric nanny, and a whole host of fantastical characters.
  • A playful novel and exceptionally well written. It has been a difficult transition for many of the 'political' writers of the 1970s to write in a contemporary, "less immediate" Latin America...Dorfman, with this novel, manages the transition well. The novel has been likened to those produced by Vargas Llosa and is worthy of this high praise. My only reservation is the exceptionally hermetic last two (or so) paragraphs...nevertheless, if the journey is more worthy than the final destination, the novel will not disappoint at all.

  • What a stupid story, I am just sorry that I wasted time in this book!

  • I should have put this book down when my gut told my so, but went ahead anyway and it took me forever to struggle through it. It made very little sense and is very contradictory and most confusing! I suppose it makes sense to some, but I really tried and came up with straws.
