On a visit to South Africa, Christer Kihlman meets Juan, a young male prostitute, in Buenos Aires. The relationship that develops between them changes his life utterly. This remarkable autobiographical novel is "their" book, the story of the strange and unusually powerful bond that develops between a middle-class, middle-aged Finnish family man and a man of the streets. The subject of enormous controversy on its original publication in Scandinavia, this is a book of ruthless honest and real anguish.
