'A searing tale of seduction and betrayal, both wryly comic and deeply serious' Sigrid Nunez, National Book Award-winning author of The Friend'Intimate, irreverent, fast-paced and raw' Sunday Times Lucas Pereyra, an unemployed writer in his forties, embarks on a day trip from Buenos Aires to Montevideo to pick up a fifteen thousand dollar advance in cash. This small fortune might solve his problems, most importantly the unbearable tension in his marriage. While his wife spends her days at work and her nights out on the town - with a lover, perhaps - Lucas is stuck at home all day staring at the blank page, caring for his son Maiko and fantasizing about the one thing that keeps him going: the Uruguayan woman he recently met at a conference and who he longs to see on this trip.The Woman from Uruguay is the surprising and moving story of one transformative day in Lucas' life. An international bestseller, it is the masterpiece of one of Latin America's most beloved writers, translated by Man Booker International winner Jennifer Croft.'At once a picaresque comedy and a penetrating study of a man on the verge of middle age' Colm Toibin
