Nostalgia for Death is the sole book of Villaurrutia, who was one of the few openly homosexual Latin American writers and one of Mexico’s most important authors of the early twentieth century. “The latest of Eliot Weinberger’s brilliant translations of Latin American poets brings to English the major volume of an impeccable Mexican modernist.”–Booklist
