(1983). Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. 235pps. Stated First Edition.

A very nice copy of the author's first novel. ".In this story about the Santinio family, transplanted from Cuba to New York City, we are offered an intimate portrait of immigrant life. American is 'the last world' for them, their final stopping-place. For Alejo, the father, it means escape from dreary farm life in San Pedro, perhaps a business of his own. For Mercedes, his wife, America is the last in an infinite line of worlds. She has had other lives, she believes, and will live again after her death. For the Santinio sons, Horacio and Hector, 'the last world' is not only last-chance America, but also Cuba -- the world before they were born, a place of sensuous beauty, ease, and ancestral memory, a mythical home. Filled with ghosts and the delicate presence of flowers, drunken men who hang onto the walls as if on a tossing ship, the sights and sounds of Oriente Province and New York City, the sweet nutty taste of a Cuban drink, the music and films of the 50's, lusty fantasies, and the toughest of city realities, 'Our House in the Last World' is a work of beauty and foreboding."
