LA CHOCA.
Bullard, A.D.

Mexico, D.F.: Editorial Novaro, 1974. Reprint 123 p., photos, boards, dj intact but showing signs of wear and chipping around top edge. Rare with the Mexican dustjacket featuring a volouptous nude woman. Good Hardcover A reprint of the novel, on which the controversial Emilio Fernandez film was based. The provocative dustjacket makes clear that the novel is trying to curtail on the shock value of the film, as does the inclusion of film stills which interrupt the text on two separate occasions. A prime example of the post-Marquez exploitative genre of Latin American literature which exoticized/caricatured protagonists and junglesque locales. Rare with the Mexican dustjacket featuring a volouptous nude woman and also in the photos inside. (Item ID: 162083)
