Spanish Description : Diosa, reina, madre, benefactora, árbitro de la moda y modelo nacional de comportamiento. Santa Evita para unos y para otros una analfabeta resentida, trepadora, loca y ordinaria, presidenta de una dictadura de mendigos.El protagonista de esta novela es el cuerpo de Eva Duarte de Perón, una belleza en vida y una hermosa etérea después del trabajo del embalsamador español Pedro Ara. Un cuerpo del que se hicieron varias copias y que, en su enloquecedor viaje por el mundo durante veintiseis años, trastorna a cuantos se le acercan y se confunde con un pueblo a la deriva que no ha perdido la esperanza de su regreso.

English Description : For some, Evita was a goddess, a queen, and a patron mother; for others she was a social climber, and a crazy and ordinary analphabet; her body is the protagonist of this novel. This book tells the impressive and absurd story of the peregrinations of Evita's perfectly embalmed corpse across oceans and in and out of Peronists' hands. - A superb craftsman, Mr. Martinez moves through stories of Evita's life and death ?and the peregrinations of her body? with a dazzling array of literary devices, including imagined interviews and memoirs, even fake screenplays.... he affirms his place among Latin America's best writers.€? ?The New York Times Book Review
