"In this adventure novel set in 1920's post-revolutionary Mexico, Paco Ignacio Taibo II is searching for a hero, specifically a leftist hero, and he thinks he has found him in the person of Sebastian San Vicente. But everyone - including the baffled novelist - is trying to figure out exactly who San Vicente really is. There is some record of San Vicente in FBI records during the Wilson era, and some mention of him in anarchist records and rumors, but the rest has to be filled in. And who better to do this than Taibo? Meanwhile - with Taibo busy in the background trying to resolve the mystery of his hero's identity - San Vicente goes about his heroic avocation of organizing strikes against the capitalists, dodging thugs and hiding out from the Mexican Army."--BOOK JACKET.

Pancho Villa : una biografía narrativa by Paco Ignacio Taibo ( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 305 libraries worldwide
La travesía de Villa, temeraria y desmedida, saturada de hechos heroicos y trágicos, siempre ha sido un símbolo atemporal de la Revolución mexicana. Taibo relata, con su estilo vibrante, todas las peripecias --desde los detalles más extravagantes hasta los momentos más trascendentes-- de un hombre sagaz, abstemio, de mirada magnética, cuya única ley es la que se daba a sí mismo. Fiel al espíritu villista: "Se usa primero ésta --decía Pancho señalando la cabeza-- y luego éstos --tomándose los testículos." Pancho Villa retrata inmejorablemente a un complejo personaje que siempre estuvo en constante fuga, incluso después de muerto.--Desde la descripción de la editorial.
68 by Paco Ignacio Taibo ( Book )
11 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 265 libraries worldwide
"In Mexico City on the night of October 2, 1968, at least two hundred students - among thousands protesting election fraud and campaigning for university reform - were shot dead in a bloody showdown with government troops in Tlatelolco Square. Hundreds more were arrested, and imprisoned for years. Yet these events are nowhere to be found in official histories: that very night the bodies were collected and trucked away and the cobblestones washed clean, and government denial of all involvement began. To this day no one has been held accountable for the official acts of savagery." "One member of the crowd that night, Paco Taibo, would become an international literary figure; '68 is his account of the events of October 2, and of the student movement that preceded them, available for the first time in English, with a new epilogue by the author. In provocative, anecdotal prose, Taibo here claims for history "one more of the many unredeemed and sleepless ghosts that live in our lands.""--BOOK JACKET.
