New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1937. First edition. His second novel. An American opera singer retreats south of the border after losing his voice and returns years later with a Mexican prostitute. "There are tenderness and beauty in the book, and also murder and vice. The arts of the film, the opera, and the bullfight are in it, and an incredible understanding of the strange nature of the human animal." -- from the jacket flap. Remarkably bright and fine in very good dust jacket with spine tanned, shallow chipping, few small tears, one tiny inconspicuous hole, and one-inch split in rear flap fold.
