|General Note:|| First published as Te vendo un perro in 2014 by Editorial Anagrama, Barcelona, Spain.
|Summary, etc.:|| "Long before he was the taco seller whose Gringo Dog recipe made him famous throughout Mexico City, our hero was an aspiring artist: an artist, that is, till his would-be girlfriend was stolen by Diego Rivera, and his dreams snuffed out by his hypochondriac mother. Now our hero is resident in a retirement home, where fending off boredom is far more grueling than making tacos. Plagued by the literary salon that bumps about his buildings lobby and haunted by the self-pitying ghost of a neglected artist, Villaloboss old man cant help but misbehave: he antagonises his neighbors, tortures American missionaries with passages from Adorno, and flirts with the revolutionary greengrocer." -- provided by publisher.
