Item description for Mireya/mireya (Spanish Edition) by Alicia Dujovne Ortiz...

Mireille, a prostitute who is sold to a pimp is forced to work in a brothel. She eventually becomes the blonde Mireya, distinguished Flamenco dancer, Gardel's lover and the most coveted and desired woman. In addition, she is Henri de Toulouse Lautrec's model and lover. Sex, love and Argentinean tales decorate this novel materialized from an idea of Julio Cortazr.

Blurb in Spanish:

A partir de una idea de Julio Cortzar - la rubia Mireya y la modelo de uno de los cuadros de Toulouse Lautrec son una misma persona-, Dujovne Ortiz asume un singular desafo: Imaginar la epopeya de esa mujer.

Mireille, prostituta que llega a ser modelo y amante del clebre Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, es vendida a un proxeneta porteo que la obliga a trabajar en un burdel. De este modo, Mireille se convierte en la rubia Mireya, eximia bailarina de tango, amante de Gardel y hembra venerada entre la clientela.

Honda y desenfadada reflexin sobre el sexo, el amor y la identidad, Mireya desacraliza a la vez que rinde homenaje a varios mitos rioplatenses.

La evolucin del tango -desde su origen prostibulario hasta su consagracin en los salones y una deslumbrante imaginera franco portea son recreados como slo una escritora de talento podra hacerlo.
