    1 thought on “Eminent Maricones: Arenas, Lorca, Puig, and Me”

    1. una autobiografia en la que el autor narra tambien un trozo de la vida de grandes autores homosexuales, tales como Manuel Puig, Reinaldo Arenas y Federico Garcia Lorca. una obra muy simpatica.

    2. Maravilloso libro. Y lo es en parte por la -valga la redundancia- maravillosa forma de escribir de Manrique. Detalles hermosos, duros, geniales de su propia vida, nos develan a un escritor homosexual que, a la vez, narra la vida de otros tres escritores homosexuales grandes y talentosos: Manuel Puig, Reinaldo Arenas y Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca.
