Another attraction is an essay on the work of the Guatemalan Nobel Prize winner Miguel Ángel Asturias, by the Slovakian author Zuzana Civáñová.
All the books in this first edition will have a circulation of a thousand copies paid for by the publisher's fund and will be available on May 3 in its sales room in this capital and in the main bookstores of the country, confirmed a note of the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
Currently the house has more than 400 works and the Cuban José Martí also published Lucía Jerez -his only novel- and the essay Guatemala, in homage to the 140 years since the poet's arrival in this country, as an expression of the ties of friendship between both peoples. (PL)
