New York: Viking Penguin Inc., 1987. First printing.
Before Salman Rushdie had become an international fugitive for writing The Satanic Verses, but after his masterpiece Midnight's Children had established him as a major writer, he traveled to Nicaragua to take the political temperature.
Finding a society nearly as complex, divided and used to casual violence as his native India gives Rushdie a unique perspective on this small Volcanic country, where he meets all types, from the President on down to every type of rebel.
Book and jacket in perfect condition, with no remainder mark, as is common.
