Description:
New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1985. Signed on the half-title page by the author. First U.S. edition / First printing. White cloth spine, burnt orange paper-covered boards. Fine in fine dust jacket. In a Paris Review interview (1981) Fuentes talked about a new novella which he was writing in English. That book was Old Gringo. I asked him about it in 1995. He said it was written in English, then translated and rewritten in Spanish (because he felt more comfortable in his native tongue). The English translation was then done in collaboration with Margaret Sayers Penden.
