Marquez, Gabriel Garcia (Translated by Gregory Rabassa). IN EVIL HOUR. New York City, NY: Harper & Row, 1979. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 183 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's fourth work of fiction to be translated into English. One of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's finest achievements. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "La Mala Hora" in a felicitous English translation. Written immediately before and is the precursor to the author's masterpiece, "Cien Anos de Soledad" ("One Hundred Years of Solitude"). The novel about a Colombian river town possessed by evil spirits unmistakably points to the author's eventual flowering and greatness, and is a "stand-alone" achievement in and of itself. "The colorful idiosyncrasies of character are present for us to marvel over again and again" (The New Republic). An absolute "must-have" title for Gabriel Garcia Marquez collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0060114142. $80.00
