Amazon.com description: Product Description: La obra más conocida de Manuel Puig, “el brillantemente inventivo novelista argentino” (The New York Times), es ahora el tema de una premiada comedia musical.
 
El beso de la mujer araña es una elegante y fascinante novela sobre el amor y la victimización. En una cárcel argentina, dos hombres comparten una celda: Molina, un diseñador de escaparates homosexual que es egoísta, auto-denigrante y al mismo tiempo encantador; y Valentín, un revolucionario articulado y ferozmente dogmático obsesionado con la memoria de la mujer que abandonó por la causa. Ambos son gradualmente transformados por su cautelosa pero creciente obsesión de Molina con la fantasía y el romance del cine.
