EL TIEMPO PRINCIPIA EN XIBALBÁ
Luis de Lión was a Guatemalan journalist, poet, activist, and teacher who wrote the first novel to emerge from an indigenous Mayan consciousness. This controversial work is available in two versions: the 2003 reprint edition of the version originally published in 1985 after the author's extra-judicial assassination, and the 1997 "authorized" version with an introduction by Guatemalan critic Arturo Arias. Profane, ribald, shocking, and profoundly Mayan in sensibility, El tiempo principia en Xibalbá signals an important turn in the indigenous image in literature, and is a vivid read in its own right. Limited quantities.
