Short Desription

A gripping first-person account, by one of the most distinguished and prolific Mexican writers of all time, 68 tells of the Tlatelolco massacre of student protestors in Mexico City in the fall of 1968. Taibo's work here is to salvage the truth of what happened on the night of October 2 and in the preceding months, drawing on notes he made at the time, and on memory. At least two hundred students were shot dead by government troops, and many more were detained. Then the bodies were trucked out, the cobblestones were washed clean, the murder "disappeared." With provocative, anecdotal, and analytical prose, Taibo claims for history "one more of the many unredeemed and sleepless ghosts that live in our lands."

Paco Taibo's numerous literary honors include two Dashiell Hammett prizes, one Planeta prize, and The Bancarella Prize for his biography of Che Guevera.
