This novella is a romantic retelling of the legend of the celebrated outlaw Joaquin Murietta, who rode the highways of early California in the days of the Gold Rush. An object of particular fascination to contemporary readers, Joaquin has been celebrated by authors like Pablo Neruda and Isabel Allende in accounts both fanciful and fantastic, in novels, films and dramatic works. This memoir fused with a novella interweaves the exploits of Joaquin with a New York artist’s search for his father, set on a backdrop of the Manhattan art world in the late 1970s. A particular work of fiction, Joaquin’s history is once again retold for a contemporary audience. As always, he emerges an enigmatic and charismatic figure, redrawn for an era which hungers for new heroes.
