FROM THE PUBLISHER - Asturias is one of our major novelists for the vigor of his imagination, the audacity with which he complicates the interior structure of his tale and the violent or tender lyricism with which he evokes the lands of America. - Enrique Anderson Imbert, Harvard University. MULATA is a rich and gaudy novel from Latin America, steeped in Indian mythology, eroticism and surrealistic adventure, by a Guatemalan writer whose name is frequently mentioned for the Nobel Prize in Literature. MULATA is the story of the weird and hilarious apprenticeship of a mestizo couple in the priesthood of witchcraft. Celestino Yumi is a poor peasant known as the Fly Wizard who sells his wife to the god of corn in return for infinite wealth and a voluptuous Mulata. But the Mulata turns Out to be bisexual, a dangerous moon spirit. When he attempts to return to his first wife, Yumi is drawn into a vast struggle with all the gods of the legend. He and his wife visit the City of Magic, Tierrapaulita, where they undergo a series of transformations. The final struggle is a nightmare panorama with Indian forces pitted against distorted Christian powers. Very Good In Slighly Worn Dustjacket With Some Tears. Bookseller Inventory # 21486
