Description:

New York. 1973. Avon/Bard. Later Printing of This Avon/Bard Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. 383 pages. June 1973. paperback. ISBN: 0380012332. inventory # 37867. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE GREEN HOUSE was put up across the river from the city of Puira at the edge of the desert. The townspeople laughed at the odd-looking green structure and the stranger who had come into the town to build it. But when the Green House was finished and its first tenants had arrived, the citizens of Puira stopped laughing. For young girls looking for an easier life and the men of Puira, drowning in the monotony and misery of their day-to-day existence, the Green House became a nighttime pleasure oasis in the desert. For the religious and moral forces and the indignant matrons of Puira, the Green House became the very incarnation of the Devil-an evil that had to be destroyed at any cost. A squirming mass of tatterdemalion humanity emerges in these pages. There are Amazonian river people and Amazonian women. There are missionary nuns, lawless speculators in raw jungle rubber, Indian tribesmen who use blowguns and pilots on river boats in the amphibious world., you get everything: the agony of a woman in childbirth, the brutalities of Indian torture, moments of intoxicated joy, a fatal game of Russian roulette, a provincial wedding. The catering is magnificent; every regional dish is served and savored. it is electrically alive. - The New York Times. Bookseller Inventory #
