Twice married--once divorced and once widowed--Soveida Dosamantes is a survivor. She is currently writing a handbook for waitresses called 'The Book of Service,' a compendium of lessons she has learned working for thirty years at El Farol Mexican Restaurant in the rural Southwest.

An acclaimed first novel of antic humor and sobering pain, of nachos and nourishment of every kind, FACE OF AN ANGEL straddles old worlds and new, Mexican, American, and Mexican-American, to explore one woman's acceptance of her true vocations, her true love, and ultimately, her true love.… Read More

New York, NY, U.S.A.: HarperCollins, Publishers, 1993. First American Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by author in black fountain ink on title page. Gregory Reeves is the son of an artist and self-styled preacher who wanders through the American West with his family in a caravan during the 1940s, preaching a divine vision he has received of the meaning of life and nature of the universe: The Infinite Plan. When the elder Reeves falls ill, the family is forced to abandon its nomadic ways and settle in a Hispanic barrio of Los Angeles. A new life begins there for Gregory: school (for the first time), gangs, sex, books and ideas, work--much of this in Spanish, a new language. As he explores the mysterious world of the barrio, he meets the people who will shape his future, among them Pedro and Immaculada Morales, who become his surrogate parents and provide him with the love and security his own family cannot give him.

Description:
New York, NY, U.S.A: HarperCollins Publishers , Inc., 1989. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A family saga spanning nearly 400 years, this absorbing epic novel lays bare the soul of the Brazilian nation. Whaling, war, macumba, slavery, murder, cannibalism and Brazil's struggle for independence add momentum to Ribeiro's lyrical, effusive, sonorous, serpentine prose laced with a touch of magic realism, something of a cross between Melville and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. (The author himself has rendered the fluent translation.) At the center is Amleto Ferreira, a 19th century paterfamilias and conniving bookkeeper who defrauds a baron of his wealth; Amleto's ladylike, long-suffering wife Teolina; and their children, among them a priest, a romantic poet and a soldier. A bestseller in Brazil, the novel graphically portrays the terrible cruelty inflicted by whites on blacks, mulattos and Indians; the lives of these native peoples… Read More

In her second novel, OF LOVE AND SHADOWS, Isabel Allende again transports us to a world of large events, high drama, and rich emotions. Again we are in an unnamed Latin American country, this time in the grip of a military dictatorship. And, at the center are two people, a woman and a man, who are fated, under the most desperate circumstances, to fall totally in love. She is Irene Beltran, a daughter of the upper classes, a well-intentioned if somewhat naive reporter for a women's magazine. He is Francisco Leal, son of Spanish exiles, a photographer and a clandestine worker in the resistance. Sent on a routine assignment, these two discover a hideous crime, the revelation of which will challenge--and provoke--the offical terrorism of… Read More

The last Hector Belascoaran Shayne mystery from Paco Ignacio Taibo II ended with the one-eyed detective lying in the oily rain of Mexico City, his body perforated with bullets. Now the author of this hugely popular, highly political, endlessly inventive series of novels proves that no miracle is beyond his reach. Hector Belascoaran Shayne rises from the dead. He's a gun-carrying argonaut of Mexico City, city of strikes and pollution, "cemetery of dreams." He doesn't want to be alive, but he is, and when a woman tells him a sob story about her sister's death at the hands of a handsome rumba dancer in white patent leather shoes named Luke Estrella, Hector agrees to do something about him. In a Mexico City hotel the detective meets a battered, alcoholic gringo… Read More
