The mysterious and enigmatic author's most famous novel. This is Traven's second novel published in America. His previous novel, Death Ship had also been published by Knopf. Roy Pateman, in his biography of Traven (The Man Nobody Knows), writes that the "renowned American publisher Alfred Knopf had been in the business for over twenty years, but not until a visit to Berlin in 1932 was he made aware of the existence of Traven who by then had sold millions of books in Europe." John Huston's Oscar-winning 1948 film helped to establish this deserving novel as a literary classic.
From the Palo Alto Collection of Modern Literature.
