This is not the first translation of Fuentes's famed novel, and thank dog for that. I recently discarded what must've been the first, and it was dreadful. In terms of diction in English, I mean, sentences lacking a verb, etc., etc. And in this book there are abrupt changes in setting and topic, so you can't afford to need to forgive the publishers for their sloppiness in letting out such atrocities. I'm looking forward to this one, which should be characterized as re-translated from the Spanish by Alfred MacAdam...

As if there weren't an abundance of good transcribers who'd kill to attach their names to a known masterpiece from the Latinamerican Boom...
