9780679768012: The Peron Novel

“One of the most original and entertaining books to come out of Latin America in recent years.”—Mario Vargas Llosa
 
On June 20, 1973, General Juan Peron, the most revered—as well as the most hated—dictator in the history of Argentina, returned to his homeland after eighteen years of exile. His arrival was the occasion for a fratricidal massacre. Less than a year later, Peron was dead. The throngs that filed past his body as it lay in state were as vast and impassioned as those that had mourned his wife, Evita, the music hall performer Peron had turned into Argentina’s secular saint and who embalmed corpse he had turned into his personal talisman.
 
Out of the facts of this enigmatic despot’s life, the Argentine journalist and novelist Tomas Eloy Martinez has created a novel who fantasy only heightens its humanity. For in The Peron Novel the mask of history is lifted to reveal a tragically hollow man who was a born follower until the moment he found himself transformed into a leader. The result is a tour de force, the most audacious and compelling meditation on absolute power since Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s The Autumn of the Patriarch.
 
“A brilliant image of national psychosis. Vividly written.”—The New York Times Book Review

From Publishers Weekly:

Credibly straddling the terrain between outright fiction and ascertainable fact, making intricate use of actual newspaper reports and interviews (the Argentinean Martinez is a journalist as well as a novelist) and crowding the canvas with a motley array of characters, this complex novel begins on the fateful day in 1973 when Juan Domingo Peron, in an advanced state of decay, left his 18-year exile in Spain to return to the turbulent anarchy of Argentina. Once all-powerful, a professional soldier and fanatic devotee of Napoleon, an admirer of Hitler, Mussolini and Franco, the Generalissimo is now critically sick, bordering on senility, helpless as authority seeps away from him and into the hands of his power-hungry cohorts. The novel roils incessantly as it shifts in time and space between Spain and Argentina and the narrative moves from one voice to another, the principal ones being Peron's secretary and ghost-biographer and an anti-Peronist journalist who also acts as spokesman for the revolutionary opposition; and to add to the hubbub Martinez speaks in his own voice as well. Issued in Argentina in 1985, this is the first American publication of a masterfully written, absorbing work.
