"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."--Jacket

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

No happy ending by Paco Ignacio Taibo( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A private eye who shares his office with a plumber, an upholsterer, and a sewer engineer, Hector Belascoaran Shayne is a one-eyed anarchist, a man who knows intimately the teeming landscape of modern-day Mexico City - land of pressing poverty, absurdist street theatre, and tragic class warfare. For Shayne, it is a world that can draw tears one moment and blood the next - as it does on the hot afternoon when he finds the dead Roman in his office." "A threatening letter and a Polaroid snapshot of another corpse let Hector know that he has been targeted for intimidation. Tracing the identities of the two dead men, he finds out what they had in common: a connection to a dead daredevil named Zorak, whose sinister sideline was training a now-disbanded paramilitary group used to put down political demonstrations." "Like Hammett's classic Red Harvest, No Happy Ending is riddled with violent death. Like the works of Marquez, it dances on the bitter edge of reality. Literary and invective, No Happy Ending is the greatest work of an author taking crime fiction into extraordinary new ground."--BOOK JACKET

68 : El libro imprescindible para comprender el México presente by Paco Ignacio Taibo( )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paco Ignacio Taibo II ha rescatado sus notas de entonces y las reflexiones que han venido después, para evitar que el tiempo desgaste el detalle de lo ocurrido y mantener viva la memoria de una generación con la voluntad de cambiar este país a través de la movilización social. En 68 Taibo II busca dar respuesta a algunas preguntas que, a más de cuatro décadas, rondan en la cabeza de quienes vivieron los sucesos, y de las generaciones posteriores que no quieren ignorar de dónde venimos. ¿Cómo se cocinó la magia? ¿De dónde salieron los 300,000 estudiantes que llegaron al Zócalo el día de la manifestación del silencio? ¿Quiénes estaban detrás de la puerta de la prepa uno el día del bazukazo? ¿Cómo regresan envueltos en rumores los nombres de los desertores y de los suicidas? ¿Dónde arrojaron a nuestros muertos?
