Pedro regresa a su Bolivia natal huyendo del amor inclemente de Ashley, su alumna en una universidad estadounidense. Tembien vuelve en busca de datos sobre su padre, un heroico lider de izquierda asesinado por la dictadura boliviana. En esta investigacion, Pedro se encuentra en medio de una voragine de infidelidades politicas y tradiciones amorosas en la que descubre las claves de su identidad.

El pasado y el presente, el amor y la politica se conjugan en una suerre de dictomias que convierten al protagonista en acertijo de su propio curcigrama.

Entre el thriller y la narrativa sociologica, Edmundo Paz Soldan nos entrega su quinta novela, La Materia de Deseo, que lo coloca entre los escritores latinoamericanos mas representivos de este principio de siglo.

Driven by his desire to forget a turbulent relationship with one of his students, Professor Pedro Zabalaga sets out to uncover the truth behind the mysterious death of his father in his native Bolivia.

    " Wow, there are few books I just can't get through, but this was one of them. Boring and indulgent, its plot, character and dialogue are all sacrificed for a political manifesto. Zzzzzzz. "

    " BOOOOORRRRINNNNNNG. Really. Blah blah and more verbal random stuff. I LOVE books about Latin America. Forget it. I finished it hoping to figure out what the point of the book was....sigh. I need to stop picking books by the region the author is from. :) "

    " I read this in Spanish first and then in English, and liked it in Spanish better. It is a quick read and is entertaining. "

    " I didn't like how passive the central character was, but I liked how he analyzed relationships between Latin America and the US, and I liked the mystery "
