Description: Jaime Manrique, one of the leading Latino writers working today, offers a provocative autobiography interweaving his own story with the lives of three other gay Hispanic authors: the Argentine Manuel Puig; Reinaldo Arenas, originally from Cuba; and Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca. The result is a poetic, moving memoir that has much to say about literature, sexuality, and Hispanic culture, as well as about four of contemporary literature's leading writers.

As one of those writers, Manrique chronicles his own intellectual and emotional journey to becoming an author. Through the account of his early years in Colombia, he provides a candid glimpse of what it means to grow up gay in Latin America. Other surprises abound -- from revelations about the last days of Arenas and Puig, to new details about Lorca's emotional life.
