Lucas Pereyar, an unemployed writer in his forties, embarks on a day trip from Buenos Aires to Montevideo to pick up a fifteen thousand dollar advance in cash. This small fortune might solve his problems, most importantly, the unbearable tension in his marriage. While his wife spend her days at work and her nights out on the town-with a lover, perhaps-Lucas  is stuck at home staring at the blank page, caring for his son Maiko and fantasizing about the one thing that keeps him going: the Uruguayan woman he recently met at a conference and who he longs to see on this trip. The Woman from Uruguay is the surprising and moving story of one transformative day in Lucas' life. An international bestseller, it is the masterpiece of one of Latin America's most beloved writer, translated by Man Booker international winner Jennifer Croft.
