It is the late 1970s and Argentina is wracked by the worst excesses of its “Dirty Wars,” as thousands have disappeared or have been tortured and murdered by a dying dictatorship. Luz Goldman, on the other hand, lives in Buenos Aires in a bubble of wealth and privilege where such horrors are simply ignored. Luz is precocious yet solipsistic, rich yet disaffected. She and her friends spend their allowances on expensive drugs, their unfettered days having casual sex. Written in stark language that echoes the unsentimental, bored mind of a young teen, this novel highlights a generation's need to ignore the realities of a politically disturbed Latin American country.
