Longing by Maria Espinosa. Arte Publico Press, Houston:1995. This is one of the finest pyschological novels I have read. It is a highly complex story of the relationship between a young Jewish woman and her abusive Chilean husband.The author masterfully develops the novels principle characters and slowly unravels their distinct pyscho/sexual makeups. One may find this book disturbing: fans of Paul Auster's novels will enjoy its throughly bizarre tone.
