Hijuelos, Oscar. New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux (1993) First Edition. Quarter cloth with gilt lettering. 484 pp. A clean, attractive copy. “Hijuelos, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love, has written a beautiful pastorale, loosely based on the idea of the limited text implied by photographs, in which the lives of 17 characters are developed.” – LJ Book: Very Good. Dust Jacket: Very Good.
