D as mental illness and illegal in most of the world And Puig seems very much ahead of his time I spent most of the book wondering how it would all play out in the nd and what the title had to do with anything And I could probably spend a long paragraph just discussing the ambiguous nature and imagery of the title but that would be a spoilerIn short recommended
