'Cesar Montero was dreaming about elephants. He'd seen them at the movies on Sunday...' Only moments later, Cesar is led away by police as they clear the crowds away from the man he has just killed. But Cesar is not the only man to be riled by the rumours being spread in his Colombian hometown - under the cover of darkness, someone creeps through the streets sticking malicious posters to walls and doors. Each night the respectable townsfolk retire to their beds fearful that they will be the subject of the following morning's lampoons. As paranoia seeps through the town and the delicate veil of tranquility begins to slip, can the perpetrator be uncovered before accusation and violence leave the inhabitants' sanity in tatters?

Descripción Harpercollins, Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., 1979. Cloth. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. First American Edition. Unused pristine stated first edition, first printing in pristine, unclipped dust jacket. Bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine and deckled foredge. The inside of the jacket shows an inverted ghost image of the purple printed on the front. This is not a bleed-through, but the result of stacking still wet inked jackets, and is visible on the several copies that I have seen. Although this is the first American edition, first printing, I have been told it is not the first state, because the author's name on the spine is given in full: "Gabriel Garcia Marquez." An early novel filled with strong yet hidden undercurrents, containing vivid characters who reflect the humor and pathos of everyday life. This brooding novel clearly points the way to the flowering of Garcia Marquez's genius in his later ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE. 183 pages. Nº de ref. de la librería 2080139638
