New York, NY, U.S.A.: HarperCollins Publishers, 2001. VG with DJ first edtiion . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good., HarperCollins Publishers, 2001, New York. 1992. St Martin's Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN: 0312071000. 212 pages. hardcover. Cover: Cary Henrie. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Exuberant and colorful, LATIN MOON IN MANHATTAN paints a stunning portrait of New York City as the land of El Dorado for today’s Latino immigrants. From Little Colombia in Queens to 42nd Street in Manhattan, the vibrant life of Latino New York offers an extraordinary cast of characters: Hot Sauce, a midget hooker; Simon Bolivar, a parrot who croons Julio Iglesias songs; Ben Ami Burztyn, a rich Venezuelan gourmand and would-be biographer of Edgar Allen Poe; Rebecca Allavant, a librarian from Alabama in love with a South American hairdresser who doesn’t speak English, and the Urrutias, a family rich from cocaine smuggling. And, of course, our protagonist, Santiago Martinez, loner and would- be poet, who thinks he will spend the summer months watching his ancient cat, Mr. O’Donnell, die of an enlarged heart. Instead, his life explodes with a profusion of plots and subplots involving cocaine smuggling, romance, literary politics among the middle-class ladies in Queens, the death of his best boyhood friend from AIDS, and the efforts of his own family and the Urrutias to marry him off to their youngest daughter, a beautiful, well-educated motorcycle fanatic who happens to be a lesbian. LATIN MOON IN MANHATTAN presents a pulsing portrait of Latin life in the urban heart of America, a lyrical homage to city living in the capital of the present. JAIME MANRIQUE was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, and moved to New York when he was seventeen. His first book of poems received his country’s National Poetry Award. In Spanish, he has published a novella and a collection of short stories, a volume of film criticism, and the novel Colombian Gold, which was translated into many languages. Forthcoming is Christopher Columbus on His Deathbed, an epic poem (Vehicle Editions). Manrique teaches creative writing and Latin American literature and cinema at the Eugene Lang College of The New School for Social Research. He lives in Manhattan. inventory #15698 ISBN: 0312071000., New York. 1983. April 1983. Knopf. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. ISBN: 0394530748. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. 120 pages. hardcover. Front-of-jacket illustration by Alain Gauthier. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Never had a death been foretold more widely. Twenty-two people had heard the Vicario twins discussing their intentions in the market on the morning of the murder, It was as if they were challenging someone to stop their crime. By the time the Bishop’s boat arrived, there were very few people in the village who did not know that young, open-hearted, wealthy Santiago Nasar was the twins’ declared victim - or why. Yet twenty-three years later, when the narrator pieces this fascinating chronicle together, witnesses cannot explain why Santiago was not warned - or whether he was guilty of anything at all. The day before his murder, Santiago, like almost everyone else in the village, revelled at the wedding of Angela Vicario, Her groom, Bayardo San Roman, was a relative newcomer to the community, but he had a large fortune, a hero General for a father, and a mother and sisters whose fashionable appearance at the ceremony left a deep impression. Some thought Bayardo a strange man, not least of all his bride, He had decided to marry Angela, having seen her only once, crossing the square. He never tried to seduce her, just bewitched the family. And even if he hadn’t succeeded in bewitching them himself his money would have, Angela made one other mistake beyond that of marrying a man she didn’t love: she dared to put on the veil and take the orange blossoms which were to signify her purity. Gabriel Garcia Márquez’s ability to recreate the intrigue and claustrophobia - the curious notion of morality and honour - which can entangle a small, close community, is well known from his masterpiece, ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE. CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD is another such intensely vivid drama, in which the quality of innocence takes on unpredictable shapes. GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ was born in Aracataca, Colombia, in 1928. He attended the University of Bogota and later worked as a reporter for the Colombian newspaper El Espectador and as a foreign correspondent in Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Caracas, and New York. He is the author of many novels and collections of stories-including NO ONE WRITES TO THE COLONEL AND OTHER STORIES, THE AUTUMN OF THE PATRIARCH, INNOCENT ERËNDIRA AND OTHER STORIES, IN EVIL HOUR, LEAF STORM AND OTHER STORIES, CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD, LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA, and ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE. Garcia Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982. inventory #16561 ISBN: 0394530748., New York. 1996. July 1996. Simon & Schuster. 1st Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN: 0684811359. McGee Shared A Pulitzer Prize In 1987 For His Reporting On The Iran-Contra Affair. 399 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Michael Accordino. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jim McGee and Brian Duffy take us behind the walls of Main Justice, as the department’s headquarters is known to insiders, to show how its awesome powers to investigate and punish wrongdoing are used - and sometimes abused - in the war on crime. Setting their sights on the department’s Criminal Division, and on the anonymous career lawyers whose decisions often become the stuff of front-page headlines and congressional hearings, McGee and Duffy show how the Justice Department has marshaled its legal firepower against Colombia’s murderous Cali cocaine cartel, violent gangs in Shreveport and Chicago, CIA-agent-turned-traitor Aldrich Ames, and international terrorists. They also expose cases in which U.S. attorneys - whether to further a political agenda or because of excessive zeal - have abused their powers, often with devastating results for ordinary Americans. The story of Main Justice is told from several vantage points: from the streets of America, where FBI and DEA agents employ sophisticated investigative tools to make arrests; from the executive suites in Washington, where career lawyers decide which cases will be prosecuted; and from the federal courtrooms, where U.S. attorneys spar with defense lawyers and judges to obtain guilty verdicts. MAIN JUSTICE also shows how the Clinton administration has altered the focus of federal law enforcement by targeting the violent street gangs that terrorize our cities and towns, and has established new procedures to safeguard the public against prosecutorial misconduct. In addition, McGee and Duffy explore the intersection of federal law enforcement and the nation’s intelligence operations, a netherworld in which the constitutional limits on domestic law enforcement are increasingly challenged. The Aldrich Ames case highlighted the use of electronic and physical surveillance of suspected spies, including warrantless searches of their homes, while the growing threat of international terrorism, along with the ever-present problem of drug trafficking across our borders, points to the need for closer cooperation between prosecutors and intelligence agents. inventory #22477 ISBN: 0684811359.
