Eva Peron entered immortality on 26th July, 1952. The bizarre after-life of her embalmed body - hidden, hijacked, replicated, smuggled abroad, buried, resurrected, repatriated - echoed her equally strange life. From the story of the plain poor-trash girl who reinvented herself to become first the uncrowned queen of Argentina's masses and then their uncanonized saint, Tomas Eloy Martinez has created a mesmerizing, highly readable work of fiction.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The most powerful work of fiction to come from Latin America since One Hundred Years of Solitude" -- Alberto Manguel * Independent *
"An extraordinary story of passion and craziness... You have to read this book" -- Isabel Allende
"Brilliant...a profound meditation on the nature and meaning of memory, the relationship between authors and subjects, and the anarchic drive of popular mythology...Few Latin American writers have confronted their countries' past with the wit, style and candour that Mr Martinez shows in Santa Evita...he affirms his place among Latin America's best writers" -- Nicholas Shumway * New York Times Book Review *
"A master novel... I got choked up, I suffered, I enjoyed, and in the course of reading I picked up bad habits and betrayed my most liberal principles...Santa Evita should be banned... or read without delay" -- Mario Vargas Llosa
"Dazzling Gothic novel, perverse love story, impressive horror story... a beautiful book, a miracle" -- Carlos Fuentes
