1st Printing. 205 pages. Published in 1989. The author's breakthrough second novel. Now considered a late-modern classic. 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. The brilliant book design by Jan Brychta reproduces one of the masterpieces of the great Uruguayan artist Joaquin Torres Garcia. Presents Cristina Peri Rossi's "The Ship of Fools" in a felicitous English translation. The very first book by the prolific Uruguayan poet, essayist, and novelist to be translated into English. Universally praised as her masterpiece, the novel (whose title and theme are an homage to Katherine Anne Porter's novel, which has exactly the same title) demonstrates Cristina Peri Rossi's singular ability to "project onto the high plains of imagination the historical Present in all its tragic reality" (Julio Cortazar). An absolute "must-have" title for Cristina Peri Rossi 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 signed copy thus. One of the greatest Latin-American writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. ISBN 0930523539. Bookseller Inventory #
