Santa Evita; translated from the Spanish by Helen Lane

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1996. 369p., second printing of the American edition, boards in dust jacket. Clean and sound, front free endsheet bears an unremarkable ownership presentation, else unmarked; a very good copy. Novel of Eva Peron by the Argentinian American writer; cancer killed her, husband-dictator Juan had her body embalmed, a "true-life (if post-mortem) odyssey. Hidden away, stolen, replicated (three perfect ccopies of her body were made and used in a mad shell game by various factions), smuggled abroad, buried, dug up and hijacked again" ..it gets even weirder.
