Overview

Set in Lima, Peru this is the story of a bizarre love triangle whose participants may be the creations of Don Rigoberto’s fertile imagination. The central characters are Rigoberto himself, a dull insurance executive by day, a pornogapher and sexual enthusiast by night; Lucrecia, his second wife; and Alfonso, his angel-faced young son. Husband and wife have been separated for a year because of a sexual encounter between the boy and his stepmother. Rigoberto misses Lucrecia desperately–filling notebooks with his memories, fantasies, and letters he will never send. Meanwhile, Alfonso visits Lucrecia, attempting to both win her love and reunite her with his father. A companion volume to In Praise of the Stepmother–where we were first introduced to these passionate characters–The Notebooks of Don Rigoberto is a compelling mix of fantasy and reality that always keep the reader guessing.
