    The Final Hours [A Novel of the Night Life of Madrid] – Jose Suarez Carreno – First English Language Edition 1954– Typography, Binding and Jacket Design by Alvin Lustig.

    Published by Alfred Knopf, New York 1954. Octavo, 273 pages printed by the Kingsport Press Tennessee under the art instructions of Alvin Lustig. It is interesting how the striking graphic jacket image has been repeated in blind on the front red cloth covered board. Very good if not better copy.

    Translated from the original Spanish by Anthony Kerrigan.

    The author Jose Suarez Carreno (1915-2002) was born in Guadalupe, Mexico but spent most of his adult life living in Madrid. He won several literary awards including the distinguished Nadal Prize in 1949 for this work … “Las Ultimas Horas”. At the time of printing few contemporary Spanish works were translated into English.

    Recounting the events of one night only we see into the lives of a drifting street boy, a beautiful young prostitute, and a rich married man of unusual character … and the night life of Madrid.
