Germán Ornes: a self portrait.

Ciudad Trujillo: Dominican Press Society, 1958. 160p., wraps, very good.

Ornes was a newspaper editor whose publication, the daily El Caribe, was expropriated and his home burned to the ground in government retaliation for his reporting and for his opposition to Trujillo. The articles here are framed by an anticommunist friar who concludes his Preface by asserting that the editor, a Marxist, is "that most dangerous of freaks --the total moral degenerate."
