Santa: A Novel of Mexico City

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The novel is held in high regard for its value as a social document. Moving with ease between government, law court and bordello, Gamboa had the advantage of being able to observe most levels of Mexican society, and Santa contains richly detailed accounts of ordinary life and political activity in the years leading up to the Mexican Revolution. Chasteen's new translation wishes to make this formative novel accessible to a new generation of readers.—Times Literary Supplement

Compelling. . . . This powerful tale draws the reader [in]. . . . Well conceived, well plotted, well written, and translated with verve by Chasteen, this novel will be a revelation to Anglophone readers. . . . Highly recommended.—Choice
