I have just received these two gifts from two Peruvian friends currently visiting Spain. I was very much interested in The first one, La venganza del silencio (The Revenge of Silence) by Alonso Cueto. See my previous post HERE. In fact it was my request when I first heard they were coming. The other one was their choice. Morirás mañana: El escritor sale a matar. (You Will Die Tomorrow: The Writer Goes On to Kill) by Jaime Bayly. I hope to read them soon.
You can read the first chapter of Bayly’s book HERE.

>Visitors who bring literary gifts are always welcome aren't they?

>Jose Ignacio – Oh, you are fortunate! Hard-to-find books are such a nice gift. I suggest these people be regular visitors at your home. Oh, and should they choose to stop in California on their way back to Peru, I would welcome them with open arms – and open bookshelves ;-).
>Book gifts are indeed welcome gifts. I really like the chess cover – nicely intriguing.
