The text is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The slipcase -- of gray paper over boards -- is modestly soiled, rubbed, and sunned: still structurally sound, it has no chips or cracks.

".Mexico, 1991: Black acid rain falls on 'Makesicko City', the most polluted, most populated city in the world.

That child is the narrator of this passionate, savage novel by one of the world's preeminent writers."
