Women's Press. 1990. (ISBN: 0704341263). Paperback. Paperback in good condition, slight yellowing of pages. 1990 1st edition The Women's Press. Translated by Amanda Hopkinson. Stories of Catholic Girlhood. These three novelettes, which first appeared in English in Great Britain, are now available to American readers. "The Talisman" recounts the experiences of the female protagonist in a religious boarding school. "Family Album," the weakest and most political of the set, counterbalances a domestic drama against the political vicissitudes preceding Somoza's exile. "Village of God and the Devil" recalls eerie extrasensory occurrences in a Mallorcan village. Throughout all three runs the theme of the persistence of the past in the present. These distinctive tales by the noted Salvadoran expatriate ably complement her testimonial Luisa in Realityland ( LJ 10/1/87) and the committed verse of Woman of the River ( LJ 4/1/89). - used books, secondhand books, out of print books, hard to find books, for sale, second-hand books, college books, student books, nonfiction, first edition, non-fiction books delivered world wide.
