While much has been written in Spanish about the moody and controversial Mexican maestro, this is perhaps the only work in English about him.
The book includes a look at the controversial figura from start to finish. Chapters include his corrida in Mexicali with Camino & Antonio Lomelin and a triumphant Tijuana event with Curro Leal and Ruiz Loredo in complete summary, a look at his years as a novillero following a set of triumphs in Guadalajara, selected results of his corridas, his Mexico City triumphs, a look at his rivals and more....
An offbeat and unique look at one of bullfighting's most enigmatic of figures.
