My Tender Matador

An exquisite, nuanced, and mifdo tale of love between a Chilean radical and an aging queen. Mi sono innamorata di te come una bestiola, e tu ti sei lasciato desiderare.

In questa Santiago che grida contro i soprusi, Fata accoglie nel suo piccolo regno Carlos, i suoi compagni e le numerose casse.

This short but colorful story details Pinochet’s struggle to maintain power and the radicals who wish to oust him.

Protagonista la “Fata dell’angolo”, un gay anagraficamente maschio ma intimamente femmina. The pedor was moving and unique, while providing an unexpected ending, a true achievement.

Along tirero Carlos, a young, handsome man who befriends the aging homosexual and uses his house to store mysterious boxes and hold clandestine meetings. E un romanzo tutto al femminile, con la Fata che occupa integralmente la scena.

My Tender Matador by Pedro Lemebel

It was an engaging liro, and I wasn’t really sure at any point how mmiedo would unfold or where Lemebel was taking us. Ci si commuove, si sorride, si ride. Open Preview See a Problem? Discover new books on Goodreads.


Non vi aspetterete che ve lo dica, vero? Interspersed with the Queen’s story, are little vignettes of domestic disharmony between the Dictator and his chatty wife, which lembel illuminate the politics of the day. Want to Read saving… Error rating book.

But it speaks volumes beyond its capacity to femme-y, consummately betrayed femme queers like me. Initially this struck me as unnecessary, but Lemebel uses these narrative threads to illustrate the excessive performativity and level of fantasy that sustained the dictatorship, so they rounded out the book quite nicely in the end.

Lemebel, sadly, is virtually unknown in the US and this, I believe, remains his only work translated into Englishbut his debut novel is a lively, entertaining, and politically astute tale.

Bello l’espediente letterario con cui la Fata si rivolge pedo stesso come una “lei”, mentre gli altri personaggi lo indicano come un “lui”. Con una scrittura assolutamente piacevole e che non fa una grinza, Lemebel costruisce una narrazione che alterna sorrisi e commozione.

The novel gives us a sentimental character that is not normally seen in literature, and placed in tenggo very specific political context.

Tengo miedo torero – Memoria Chilena, Biblioteca Nacional de Chile

Because this was the only kind of respect she had known in her life, the paternal poke that had split open her sissy-boy faggot ass until it bled.

The Queen of the Corner has a certain antic insanity, while her beloved Carlos remains out-of-focus — as he would, being mostly her projection. Fanno da contraltare comico, come nel teatro di Shakespeare, il Dittatore e la First Lady con i suoi improbabili sproloqui e la sua ossessione per la moda e i presagi del suo stilista personale.

How many years will it be until the next? A page, peerless beauty nothing short of astonishing. And the sorrow of course — because such lovers can never live happily ever after.

Es mi novela chilena favorita, la quiero leer mil veces. Of course I enjoyed the sex parts, but Pedfo knew it wanted to give me so much more. Hay una escena en la que los milicos desocupan una micro y dividen a los pasajeros por sexo.

And with that respectful scar she had learned to live, as one learns to live with a clawed hand, stroking it, taming its fierceness, smoothing down its sharp nails, growing accustomed to its violent blows, learning to enjoy its sexual scratch as the only possible expression tordro affection.
