Free Book Friday #5: Goodies in Spanish

Up for grabs this weekend are a few books in Spanish, including one bilingual Spanish-English collection:
  • Los relampagos de agosto by Jorge Ibarguengoitia,  a nice 1979 paperback edition purchased in Puebla, Mexico back in 1991. Great condition.
  • La barca sin pescador by Alejandor Casona: first American edition, hardcover, published in 1955 by Oxford University Press. Spanish with an English introduction. Book is in good condition, but spine and part of back cover have some cloth deterioration ("scabby" spots).
  • Y no se lo trago la tierra by Tomas Rivera, published as a bilingual Spanish/English volume. The translation, And the Earth Did Not Devour Him, is by Evangelina Vigil-Pinon. First paperback edition, published in 1987 by Arte Publico Press in Houston. Pretty good shape, with some edge wear to the covers.
Remember: you may claim any book for free by posting a response here (to this blog post) or on Facebook (I cross-post there after this post appears). I will ship your book(s) by Media Mail; all I ask is that you reimburse me for the postage.
