1975. The cusp of Argentina's Dirty War. The magnate, Fausto Tamerl?n, has been kidnapped by guerrillas, who as part of their ransom demands have stipulated the placement of a bust of Eva Per?n in all ninety-two offices of Argentina's leading construction company, Tamerl?n & Sons. Tamerl?n's head of procurement, Ernesto Marron?, is the man tasked with the job, but he soon finds out that his is a mission for executives of a heroic disposition. His subsequent picaresque journey plunges him into a world of occupied factories, the slums of Buenos Aires and the utopian Evita City. Equipped with his trusty copy of Don Quixote: The Executive-Errant, Marron? is a modern knight who finds himself forced to penetrate the ultimate Argentinian mystery: Eva Per?n that maid of myth and legend whom we know as Evita. A stand-alone novel in its own right but also a prequel to his first novel, The Islands (And Other Stories, 2012), Carlos Gamerro's caustic and utterly original novel is a shattered window onto Argentina's recent past.
