The Bandits from Rio Frio: A Naturalistic and Humorous Novel of Customs, Crimes, and Horrors
Manuel Payno's 19th century classic,
The Bandits from Rio Frio: A Naturalistic and Humorous novel of Customs, Crimes and Horrors
, has been translated for the first time into English by Alan Flukey (Heliographica Press, 2005). It would be fair to call Payno Mexico's Dickens.
The Bandits from Rio Frio
is a major work-- and the translation is superb. Read a review over at
River Walk Journal Blog
, and another at
. This translation should have gotten a lot more attention than it has.
